The “Brave the shave” event was held during lunchtime on Wednesday. Altogether, half a dozen grade 12 students had their hair shaved off by schoolmates.
Fergus Ramage, the student who organised the fundraiser, said in an email sent via the school on Friday:
“I set up the event to give something back to cancer support as they supported my family through some hard times with both of my grandfathers, so I wanted to raise awareness. I had fun with the other students and would like to thank everyone who sponsored us and helped to make the event a great success.”
As of Friday afternoon, students had raised more than €750.
