Year 5 student has haircut for charity

Report by Head of Primary PE Jo North

When a student comes to school with a haircut or new hair colour, I’m one of those people that notice. So as I was complimenting Vivian (Year 5) on a lovely hair cut last week, I was taken aback and overwhelmed with emotion when she explained the reason behind her dramatic cut.

Vivian has donated her hair to ‘Locks of Love’ a public non-profit organisation that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under the age of 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.

Her parents are in full support of Vivian’s passion to help others; and years ago they encouraged her to do it after coming across an article about turning people’s hair into wigs for cancer patients who have permanently lost their hair. This is Vivian’s second donation.

It takes a very special person to perform such a wonderful act of kindness  and to make a difference to someone else’s life. Perhaps Vivian’s kindness will touch the heart of others and more donations might be made from our Bangkok Prep family.
