Students and staff cut and colour for a great cause

Saint Stephen’s students and staff lined up for the annual cut and colour their locks in the World’s Greatest Shave fundraiser for the Leukemia Foundation.

College Chaplain and fundraising team captain, Father Andrew Kinmont, said the annual event always attracted keen participants and this year hoped to top the $15,000-plus raised last year.

“Shane Van Zyl, now in Year 5, is certainly one of our special shavers this year, having been involved with the World’s Greatest Shave since Year 2, when he wrote notes to his classmates asking them to bring in a donation. He has had his head shaved since Year 3 and this is his third time to support the Leukemia Foundation,” said Father Andrew.

Students involved:

  • Shane Van Zyl (Year 5)
  • Jamal Galanopoulos (Year 7)
  • Owen Wang (Year 7)
  • Jaron Dalton (Year 8)
  • Herman Van Zyl (Year 8)
  • Jacob Rossiter (Year 11)
  • Lochie Smith (Year 12)

“Joining them in getting their heads shaved were staff Mick Skehan, James Evans-McLeod and David Hendrickson. The seven staff getting their hair coloured included: Laura Sullivan who has undergone treatment for Leukemia and inspired many to support this worthy cause, Carla Agiasotelis, Richard Smith, Kirsty Trezise, Claudia Marmissolle, Michaela Mulrine, and Rebekah Bailie.
