Students and staff participateD in a “mass shave or dye” on Thursday 17-02-11 to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society, in conjunction with Today FM’s Shave or Dye Campaign. Over 140 students and staff signed up to shave or dye their hair on the night in order to raise money for a cause very close to so many people’s hearts. In the current climate of doom and gloom, the generosity of spirit and support amongst the young people, the school, business and general community of Youghal is heartening and shines a beacon light of hope. Local hairdressers have also generously volunteered their time and skills to make the event possible. So far over €9000 has been raised. The organisers would like to thank everyone for their support and generosity.
