World's Greatest Shave

WORLD’S GREATEST SHAVE - FRIDAY, MARCH 15 - Donate online HERE OR bring cash on the day - Thank you !

From our School Captains and Vice-Captains ...........

On the 15th of March Arcadia Public is helping shave the world from blood cancer! To save the world from blood cancer you’ll help make a difference in the lives of the 35 Australians diagnosed every single day with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma.

Instead of shaving you can style your hair into a bizarre hairstyle for a day and if you’re already bald? Use face-paint to get creative! The world’s greatest shave is aiming to raise $16.2 million in 2019, so far they have raised $3,888,770 and we’re going to help reach that goal by bringing in a donation, we are all funding vital research that will help more people survive blood cancer but don’t worry we’re not making you shave your hair, just don’t forget to come to school with an amazing, crazy, unique and colourful hairstyle to rock all day.

Guess what, Arcadia is having a special person have their head shaved. Want to know who? Well you’ll just have to wait and see. Know any Dads, Uncles or Grandads who would like a head shave or short overall clip too and help raise funds?? Let us know! We are holding a poster competition for people to draw the person that they think is going to have their hair shaved. We also have a special person coming in to do the shaving.

We hope you’re exited to raise money for blood cancer and dress in some colourful clothes, don’t forget to get your hair crazy and collect your sponsors - ask your family, friends and neighbours to donate to this fantastic cause.
