Over $6000 to Research

Yarram Secondary College staff, students and community members raised a whopping $6300 for leukaemia research as part of the Worlds Greatest Shave. Felicity Baird, Liam Mitchell, Eli Emery, Sam Chisholm, Riley Barlow, Jordan Brooks and Matthew Hoppner all lost their locks and Emilie Bassett had half her head shaved,  school captain Rory Mullan and Mr Martini braved the wax strips to lose the hair on their legs, a number of students dyed their hair and more had colored hair spray sprayed in their hair. Sarah Myers had her hair straightened, and students wore casual clothes, bought cakes, guessed the number of lollies in the jar to come up with the grand total. The cause is particularly close to our hearts as Shane Treller from Year 8 is currently under going treatment in the Royal Children’s Hospital. Video footage was streamed live to Shane as the shavings took place. Well done to those who participated and or donated money, we should be very proud of what was achieved. Special mention to Felicity who raised over $3,000, Liam $1,000 and Sam $592. A big thank you to Nyree and Jae Taylor who did such a neat job of the shavings.
