Student Council

23/03/2015
As has been the tradition over the last few years, the newly elected Student Council involved themselves in support of the Leukaemia Foundation fund raiser “Shave for a Cure”. During the lunch break on Friday, 13 March, eleven students were brave enough to have their hair shaved while another nineteen elected to colour their hair.
 
Gold coin donations for the privilege of wearing free dress on the day as well as donating to observe the happenings during the lunch break were included in the fund raising event. Special praise needs to be given to six students who raised sponsorship exceeding $100 and one student in particular, Maddie Ross, made a tremendous effort in securing $2500 to have her pretty locks shaved.
 
A grand total of $4958.65 was raised to support the Leukaemia Foundation and their endeavours to find cures for blood cancers and support of sufferers and their families.    
 
The Student Council wish to extend a huge debt of gratitude and appreciation to all the students who involved themselves in some way to contribute towards the fund raiser, the many parents, care-givers and family members who encouraged and supported their participants, not to forget the many staff members who graciously supported their students and the volunteers from the Leukaemia Foundation for their help on the day as well as parent / hairdresser, Donna Parker. 
 
In general, the tremendous school and community spirit supporting this venture needs to be acknowledged and the Student Council is extremely proud, as a result, to contribute to the fantastic work being done by the Leukaemia Foundation.    
 
Mr Paul Burns
