About 60 Year 12 students and rugby union and league players in Year 11 have shaved their heads to raise money for blood cancer.

They’re now feeling the cold, but taking heart in knowing it was all for a good cause.

“We had a good response from the school community in the shaving and the auction,” organiser Year 12 student Keagan Size said.

“It’s a Farrer tradition to support the World’s Greatest Shave and Shave for a Cure.”

The tradition began when one of the teachers had a family member with cancer.

Keagan said he grew his hair long before he shaved it, then the Year 7 students were “let loose on it” with shavers.

The school raised $2000 from the shaving and auction.

Their next fundraiser is for prostate cancer, when all Farrer sporting teams will ditch their boots and play in socks for one match.
