Multi coloured mohawks, teachers sporting pink or purple hair and shaved heads gives a glimpse at what Kildorrery National School was like, as the school raised more than €350 for the Irish Cancer Society through its first ever Shave Or Dye event.

The Shave Or Dye fundraiser was first brought to the table by teacher Ellen Downey, who bravely dyed her hair pink on the day and she was joined in the hair salon chair by fellow teacher Mary Roche, who went purple on the day. Parents Thomas Flynn, Sabrina Arnold, Anna Bermingham Doran and Sarah Stewart also dyed their hair, while Nicky Walsh was the only one to take the brave step and shave his head.

The children also joined in the fun, with many of them coming into school with their hair sprayed different colours, wearing multi coloured extensions or sporting wigs or mohawks.

On the day, the parents and staff were assisted by Noreen’s Hair Salon and Gitana’s Hair Salon in Kildorrery, who were also given a small presentation of sweets by the students, as a token of appreciation for giving up their time and expertise.
