Close shave helps schoolmate

Students at Pine Rivers State High School at Strathpine have put their heads together – and under hair clippers – to raise money for a mate in need.

Their Pine Rivers High colleague Harry Bowes, from Ocean View, was diagnosed with leukaemia in August and has been undergoing chemotherapy in hospital.

Students ran a Help For Haz shave day at the school, raising money to support Harry and his family.

Along with a trash and treasure stall, the initiative raised $4000.

Students from Grace Lutheran College at Caboolture are also supporting Harry.

The school’s Year 7 students last month organised a lunchtime fete which raised around $310, with all money donated to Help For Haz.

The fundraiser was part of the school students’ pastoral care program.
