Students and teachers at a Wagga high school are getting bristly and bushy this month to help raise money for men’s health.
A team of teachers at Wagga Wagga High School aregoing head to head with year 12 students in order to raise funds for the Movember campaign – a global charity aiming to help men live longer, healthier and happier lives.
The school’s fundraising efforts have become part of its “Millennium Cup Challenge”, a school tradition that sees students and teachers compete against one another in various challenges.
Teacher team captain Thomas Pollard said despite the competitive element, the overall aim was to raise as much money and awareness for Movember.
“We really want to raise as much as we can for the cause, as well as having some fun on the side,” he said.
According to Mr Pollard, the incentive helps the school kids understand some of the life-threatening issues affecting men in the community.
“We really want to bring those conversations about health into the classroom, because they’re such important issues to discuss with the students,” he said.
