Greatest Shave at Alex


This year the Chaplaincy service, alongside the School Captains and Mr Compton organised the World’s Greatest Shave to support the Leukaemia Foundation. Students donated a gold coin to get their hair sprayed with colour or wear a funny hat to school. They also donated to get inside the school hall to see the year 12 boys get their heads shaved or legs waxed. The day was an outrageous success with the students and staff rising over $3000, this is double what was raised last year! 


I would like to thank the year 12 boys who waxed their legs and shaved their heads and raised over $1800 themselves. I would also like to thank Gina Limpus and Tegan Deas who cut off their long locks for the cause.  We also had many teachers get involved in the shave this year with Mr Cherry waxing his legs, Mr Bell, Mr Robinson and Mr Murray shaving their heads and Mr Leon, Mr Newton and Mr Compton dying their hair bright colours!
