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.
