Growth at Koorawatha Public School

It was all about growth and letting your hair go, literally, at Koorawatha School on the final day of Term 1 last week with the school holding a World's Greatest Shave and grand opening of its outdoor learning hub.

All proceeds from the day will go towards The Leukaemia Foundation as part of the World's Greatest Shave.

In support of the cause James Lambshead and Rob Quigg had their head shaved. James didn't raise any money, just did it for the cause with Rob raising $635.

Teacher Savannah Sissans-Postle said the school was raising funds for the World's Greatest Shave, a really great cause and holding a fete to show off the school's new facilities.

"The day is not only just raising money, a lot of today is about boosting community engagement," Ms Sissans-Postle said.

"Getting the community together is a really important aspect of what we're trying to do here because that a really important aspect of the childrens' growth. It is really important that they know they are supported.

"This morning we also worked on a learning eco system," she said.

The system includes a sustainability pillar, a transition pillar and a cultural pillar.

The children also have chickens to look after and flower and vegetable gardens mostly put together by school chaplain Mr Golden. His last day at the school was also last Friday.

The day also included spray painting the hair of some of the teachers, the shave, relay races, an Easter hair parade, raffles, Easter egg hunt and a colour fun run.
