Students and teachers from Dubbo St John's College "braved the shave" last week to raise funds for its year 12 students' chosen charity, Clare's Angels.
Participants from year seven to year 12 and a couple of St John's College teachers faced the clippers and scissors for the good cause.
Popular Wellington-based barber Corey Sutherland, better known as the Boomerang Barber, also donated his time to help cut and shave the participants' hair with the help of teacher Angela Dunworth.
Clare's Angels is a Dubbo-based charity founded by community members Jenny Cuthell, Rahni Ryan, Emma Tink, Regina Goodridge and Jane Diffey.
The organisation was formed to offer support and financial help to families whose child or children have been diagnosed with a disability or a special need.
The students who shaved their heads included two year seven boys, Byron Bland and Brad Knaggs.
They contributed to the funding of more than $1768, which will go towards the end-of-the-year total in 2020.
The idea to shave their heads came from year 12 student Justin Howie who initially presented the idea to his peers to do as their next fundraiser.
Mr Howie also volunteered his locks to the service.
Another year twelve students to face the scissors for Clare's Angels were Brigid Isbester and Chris Karam, who both had significant lengths of hair cut off from their long locks.
Mr Karam had been growing his hair out for four years before his cut, and Miss Isbester had been growing hers out "since birth".
St John's College teacher Mr Gay had his full-beard shaved by the Boomerang Barber, and Mr Galvin went full-skin bald.
St John's College also thanked the Foley family for their donation of $100.
After the haircutting and shaving of heads and faces, students, staff and volunteers were invited to a fundraising barbecue.
Proceeds from the barbecue also contributing to the $1768 that was raised.
St John's year 12 coordinator Jo Hornby said she felt "proud" of the effort the students had displayed.
"It was a very successful day for the year 12 charity," Ms Hornby said.
"I also wanted to give a huge congratulations to our seven N class.
"They donated more than $100, and to our two year-seven boys, Byron and Brad, who stepped up and donated their locks."
The students will continue raising money, through fundraising events like brave the shave, for Clare's Angels throughout 2020 as part of the schools year 12 tradition to accumulate funds for a local charity of their choice.
