CANSA Shavathon


On 28 February, Brescia House School held their annual Shavathon. Pupils, parents and staff showed their support by donating money toward this event. Two staff members, Mrs Auchterlonie and Mrs McLouglin, along with grade 11 pupil Aashna Beepan, cut off their long ponytails. The hair will be used to create wigs for cancer patients.

Three very brave pupils, Caitlin Felton, Julia Dedering and Kianne Coltman, shaved their heads in support of the cause.

At the same time, the girls held a Ribbonathon. Girls in the primary and high school decorated their hair with colourful ribbons and proceeds from the purchases of the ribbons were added to the Shavathon donations. Thank you to all for their support of this initiative.
