My name is Kate McShane, and I am a member of the 2022 Student Executive and Round Square Committee. Within my two leadership groups, I have decided to run a World’s Greatest Shave in Term 2, on Tuesday 14 June 2022.

The World’s Greatest Shave is run by the Leukemia Foundation across Australia and they aim to provide families with support, help fund research and make wigs for those who will sadly lose their hair during chemotherapy.

I am shaving my hair off and have some amazing students joining me on this journey. But we need more. We need you!

I am calling on all of you, students, teachers, staff, parents, to support this charity. There are many ways in which to do this; either shave your head fully, maybe cut off 20cm so that your hair can assist with wig making, or even just one centimetre to help soak up oil spills.  Please get around it!!

There are so many upsides to participating in this event:
You are going to save money on shampoo.
You will help the environment by donating towards the soaking up of oil spills.
You will rock a new hairdo and be able to wear so many comfy, warm beanies during the cold weather.
But most importantly, you will help families who are experiencing something unimaginable and something so painful.

If you’re interested in donating any of your hair or would like more information, please send an email, find me at school, or reach out on Instagram or Facebook.  I will provide further details closer to the shave date.

I would love to hear from you all. Any support would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
