Students and teachers will join the nationwide fight against blood cancer tomorrow when they put their hair on the line for money.

Newton Moore Senior High School will hold its fifth World’s Greatest Shave event where students will rejoice in inflicting pain and sacrifice on their peers in the name of charity.

The school’s laboratory technician Jasmin Buckley-Smith coordinates the event each year and will be having her long brunette locks cut off, after growing it out for five years.

She said it was the longest her hair had ever been and she was “so excited” to have the heavy weight removed.

“I love getting the students involved and seeing them be reminded that it’s just hair and it’s going to grow back,” Mrs Buckley-Smith said.
