GHS teachers to lose their locks
FOR the students of Grafton High School, August 13 will provide an opportunity to exact a bit of revenge on some of their teachers for poor marks, or to make them look like 'wing nuts'.
Seven of the school's teachers have lined up to have their heads shaved as part of Bluey Day, a revamped version of Crop-A-Cop, to raise money for children's cancer research.
Ian O'Laughlin, Ian Ross, Craig Howe, Paul Kenneally, Aaron Robins, Glenn Lasker and Scott Barnier have put up their hand for the fundraiser, and now organisers are attempting to get others involved.
The Bluey Day is being organised locally by Grafton Bunnings store representatives Dawn Collison and Col Stephens. The pair said they were aiming to raise $16,000 in the Clarence Valley through the head shaves, others (including Dawn) getting their hair dyed blue and sausage sizzles outside the Bunnings store in Pound Street.
Ms Collison said they were approaching schools because young people would be the most likely to benefit from successful cancer research.
"Generally we would like to raise about $1000 per 'head'," she said.
"We haven't got a female to shave yet, but we have one police officer who is willing to dye her hair blue."
A trivia night is being planned for the South Grafton Ex Servicemen's Club on July 30. The next Bunnings sausage sizzle is on Saturday.
