The hairstyles were far from regulation at Ballarat Christian College last week when senior VCAL students organised a crazy hair day for the junior school to raise money to support drought-stricken farmers.
Cans of crazy colours and hours of intricate styling were shown off during a “hair fashion parade” before the staying-power of hair product was tested during a basketball skills shoot out.
Year two pupil Joseph combined both themes of the day, sporting a basketball court hairstyle complete with players and hoop.
Ballarat Christian College VCAL coordinator Karen Farquahar said students had decided to support the Rapid Relief drought fundraiser because one of the organising students was from a rural area.
“Organising this type of event helps build their personal development skills so they learn communication skills, interpersonal skills, team work, problem solving, negotiating with teachers and dealing with junior school children – all skills they can transfer to the workforce,” Ms Farquahar said.
