Newlands College students shave their heads for charity Continued from page 1. Tiarne Southon was the first to receive a new haircut. “I’ve seen so many people in the years before me doing it, but I have never had the guts to join before,” she said. After one of her fellow students had a first go on her hair, professional hairdresser Morgan MacDonald from Salon Savoy in Tawa gave Tiarne a smooth shave. “It’s an awesome initiative; I’m not sure I could do it,” Morgan said. Tiarne said her hair had been about half a metre long. She donated it to Happy Hair who make wigs for cancer patients. Shave for a Cure is a nationwide programme. Shavees have been raising funds for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand and the six Kiwis diagnosed with blood cancer or related conditions every day for the past 15 years.

This year’s $1million aim has almost been achieved. Geoff Miller was the volunteer teacher to join the Newlands College fundraiser. “The group of students that have joined and organised this year’s event is quite big in comparison to previous years,” Geoff explained. Geoff said he was a bit nervous as about half a dozen of his students had a go with his new hair cut. Michael Chang broke the record of the day raising $360 for his hair. Michael and Jess Mok, who hadn’t cut her hair for two years before having it shaved off for $350, were the initiators for this year’s event. Everyone agreed that it would take some time to get used to the bald head: “It feels like my head has become shorter,” Kyran Van Asch said. However, the organisers said the fundraiser was a success.

As part of their school project Year 10 students Amelia Taylor, Novalie McGuire and Liardet Anderson from Queen Margaret College organised a movie night to raise funds for the Children’s Ward at the Wellington Hospital. “We want to raise money so we can buy fun games and special medical toys for children that are in the hospital,” Novalie explained. “Medical toys can help them to understand how surgery works which can reduce their anxieties before a procedure.” The movie night will be held at the Penthouse Cinema in Brooklyn coming Tuesday at 8pm showing This Beautiful Fantastic, a new release.

“The movie is for the whole family,” Novalie said. Tickets cost $25 each, and include a glass of beer or wine, or an ice cream – all proceeds would go towards the Children’s Ward. There will also be spot prizes on the night. Novalie’s mother Michelle McGuire said they would also happily accept monetary or toy donations from businesses that are interested in supporting this cause. “In return for donations, we will advertise your business, to thank you for your support, on the night.”  Please contact Novalie at novalie.mcguire@student. for details.
