Students brave the shave as school smashes fundraising goal

Two Year 12 students from Cowra High School have braved the shave following a week of fundraising for two vital causes.

Ky Johnson and Sonny Eastwood lost their locks on Friday morning in front of the school, keeping good on a promise they would get their heads shaved if $1500 could be raised to be shared between the Tailor Hampton Memorial Award and Cowra headspace.

Students, their families and the entire community came through, smashing their original goal and raising $2700 for the two causes.

Other activities during the week included Minute to Win It challenges, a sausage sizzle and a bake sale.
