More than 40 people watched Deniliquin’s Richard Sievers and his students shave off their hair for the World’s Greatest Shave on Saturday.
The Leukaemia Foundation fundraiser was held at the Lions Community Market in the Waring Gardens, and was hailed a ‘‘terrific success’’.
Mr Sievers said goodbye to his goatee and hair on the day, while four of his students also participated.
TAFE NSW Riverina Institute Deniliquin Campus Certificate II Skills for Work and Training students Tim Daly, Les Nelson, Scott Clancy and Diana Ross all shaved.
Deniliquin Lions members Colin Dowell and Dick Teunon also joined the shave and donated $1000 towards the Leukaemia Foundation fundraiser.
And as a ‘‘surprise’’ shave, Barb Lyne also said goodbye to her hair.
The students coordinated the day as part of their community project component. Determining the overall tally will also be part of their assessment next term.
‘‘It all went really well — the students did a great job.’’ Mr Sievers said.
‘‘We had a lot of people who were colouring their hair as well on Saturday.’’
The students, who are on holidays for the next two weeks, are expected to tally the funds in their first week back at school.
