A student gets his head shaved.

Students from Isabella Dicken Elementary School and Fernie Secondary School showed support for one of their fellow students by getting their heads shaved on Monday.

Fifteen students, including one girl, got their hair cut or shaved and raised money to help support Grade six student Dalton Hutchinson, who has been diagnosed with bone cancer.

The students received a total of $4,743, and entertained fellow students in the Isabella Dicken gym on Monday by getting their hair cropped by volunteer hairdressers, Claire Poirier, Claire Hertz, Sharlene Czeh, and Monique Mattersdorfer.

Organiser Suzi Zimmerman, said the kids wanted to show Dalton they were thinking of him.

“We all wanted to help Dalton and his family with the cost of treatment in Calgary,” she said.

Many students also signed a quilt for Dalton, hand made by Karren Bax and Give’er Shirtworks donated bandanas for the kids’ newly shaved heads.

The students who took part were Cole Zimmerman, J.J. Goodison, Sam Goodison, Jaiden Brocconier, Kennedy Borgen, Braiden Latka, Daniel McRae, Cory Caldwell, Colten Skead, Myles Benjamin, Dakota Steinwandt, Colton Hutchinson, Dawson Hutchinson, Quinten Barr and Brendan Shepherd-House.
