Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave

March 9, 2023  
Head of Junior School - Ms Geneva Clayton

Year 3 student Cora Beebe and Year 6 student Arthur Feitosa Nunes are leading the initiative and will be donating their long hair to be made into a wig for cancer patients. Junior School students are encouraged to support this wonderful fundraising event by making a donation through the links below.

Cora Beebe — Why am I taking part?

I did the calculations. Over 5696 people die from blood cancer every year.

If we deny help for these people that number might increase.

That’s why I’ve decided to take part in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave (actually #2 buzz cut)

I’ll be raising crucial funds that help give those facing blood cancer all the support and information they need, while driving breakthrough research projects discovering better ways to diagnose and treat blood cancer. I will also be donating my ponytail to become a charitable wig for someone suffering from cancer and give them back their confidence!

You have the power to help me make an extraordinary difference.

Big or small, every donation counts.

Will you help by sponsoring me please? http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/corabeebe


Arthur Feitosa Nunes — Why am I taking part?


Arthur has always wanted to help cancer patients. When he was around 4 years old, his friend’s mum discovered that she had breast cancer while pregnant. Our families were close; that was the first time he heard about cancer. At that point, he also learned that his grandmother and my grandmother also had cancer. Then he decided that he wanted to be a scientist and find a cure for all types of cancer. Nowadays, he doesn’t want to be a scientist, but he still wants to help patients with cancer and their families.

When we moved to Australia, he was in Year 2, and that was his first contact with the World’s Greatest Shave. He realised that this could be his way to help bring awareness and support cancer research, so he decided to be part of this fundraiser. He has been growing his hair for the last two years as he planned to participate whilst he was in Year 6.

Arthur believes that with help, we can change the world, and this is his first step.
