South Otago High School head of social sciences teacher Mike Beeby, who featured in last week’s edition, had his fate sealed last Wednesday with a mullet shave. An online total of $3580 was raised in support of the Child Cancer Foundation, and the school raised a further $430 on the day with gold coin donations. Mr Beeby’s shave was made public and students got to watch the final hurrah atlunchtime. Students sat and watched with their own colourful wigs in support of the event. Mr Beeby made a further deal and said if there were to be $4000 raised he would never, ever bring the mullet back to school ever again. Throughout the community other institutions including Blue Mountain College, Rosebank Kindergarten and more schools staged their own versions to celebrate and support Wig Wednesday and the Child Cancer Foundation. The
Clutha Leader’s Evelyn Thorn was there to capture the fun.
