To show support and raise money for her father who has leukemia:
A 15-YEAR-old Brisbane school girl has been suspended for shaving her head to raise money for vital cancer research. Ms Pridham decided to shave her head as part of a fundraiser for cancer research. “I am just appalled that she could be suspended by a Catholic school that promotes joy, respect and community spirit,” she said. Mount Alvernia College released a statement to Channel Nine News that said Ms Pridham had breached the college’s uniform guidelines and had been suspended because of “ongoing issues”.
