The event was attended by parents, teachers and students with everyone giving their moral support as the plaits were chopped. Parents and teachers were thrilled to see pupils care so much about others that they were willing to change their appearance.

Mrs Irvine, Vice-Principal of the school was amazed at how many pupils got involved. She said: “It was really humbling to see it – they really are a great bunch and we, as a school, are so proud of them!”

Two sets of sisters decided to go for it together – Jamie and Kirsten Little, both College pupils and Ami Todd and her little sister (a pupil at Whitehead Primary School) What a great cause, well done girls!
