The lead-up to The World’s Greatest Shave last month struck a chord with many students and staff, sparking mass enthusiasm to support those with cancer.
SVACS student Thalia Wilkinson said the choice to be involved was a sign of support for those being treated for cancer.
‘I believe that shaving your hair is something to be proud of as it shows respect to the people who have to go through the pain of cancer and while the hair has been shaven, it can grow back,’ she said.
Student Jacob Canet-Gibson said he wanted to be involved with The World’s Greatest Shave after seeing it last year, when the school raised $3000.
‘With several people in our school community suffering from cancer, I wanted to try raise money and attention for cancer in our local community and school,’ he said.
‘I hope that we continue to raise more money for the cure for cancer.’
