Ponytail Project History
In 2015, a member of the St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School parent community was diagnosed with breast cancer. Students Beth Flint, Meg Fraser, Maria Cobain and Annabelle Crossley were moved to help – and launched a student-led fundraising initiative they called ‘The Ponytail Project’, believing that chopping off their ponytails was a small price to pay to support those impacted by cancer.
The Ponytail Project received an outpouring of support in its inaugural year, fuelling the drive for an annual campaign.
Sadly in 2016, St Margaret’s students had even more reason to support the initiative - the loss of a beloved teacher and past student Amanda Minotti, who passed away from cancer. Each year, participation and funds raised have grown, with 84 students from St Margaret’s school cutting their hair in 2019.
Will your school join St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School and help put a stop to cancer?
