Mos grow at SPC

November 11, 2019

For 11 months of the year students at St Patrick’s College are required to comply with the College’s uniform policy which dictates that boys must be clean-shaven.

The only exception is Movember!

This month students in the Senior School are permitted to join the Movember fundraising campaign in an effort to raise funds for and awareness of men’s health.

Those who are able and allowed to grow a mustache in November as long as they are contributing to the SPC team effort which is seeking to raise more than $7000 for the cause.

To date, our efforts have raised $2709 so we have a bit of a way to go.

The SPC team is comprised of current students and staff. We are inviting all Old Collegians and parents to also consider joining our team.

If you and/or your son would like to participate, please take note of the following steps:
