Over 20 students shave their heads to support the Leukaemia Foundation
The Hutchins School is proud to support the Leukaemia Foundation each year as part of their student-led service and fundraising initiatives to give back to the community. This year, William Zeeman (Year 11) has taken the lead in organising this event to raise awareness for blood cancer and fundraise for this important cause.
‘With one person being diagnosed with a blood cancer every 28 minutes, we are proud to have 21 boys shaving their heads to show support for the Leukaemia Foundation. We hope the event not only raises much needed funds but also increases awareness by bringing the community together to create conversation about the impacts of blood cancer in Australia.’
The team of 21 students from Years 7 to 12, plus staff, have so far raised nearly $14,000 in support of the Leukaemia Foundation. Thank you to all students and staff for their efforts in making today’s event a success. Students enjoyed a BBQ lunch with entertainment from the Buckland House band and Tom Gibson (Year 11) whilst students had their heads shaved.
