Register your team of school action heroes!
Assemble your World’s Greatest Shave school heroes today!
Your school is challenged to recruit a team of big-hearted students and staff and register for World’s Greatest Shave!
Dob in your teacher, take over assembly, or even rally the troops at lunchtime with a motivational speech, Rocky Balboa style! All that matters is that you unite a team of action-heroes from your school – all in the name of conquering blood cancer!
Today, 50 Aussies will be told that they have blood cancer – and as the most diagnosed cancer amongst children – blood cancer is a notorious super-villain for schools all over the country.
Signing up to World’s Greatest Shave is a fun and powerful way to fight back against blood cancer and unite your school community while learning important life lessons about empathy, humanity and community service along the way. Plus – it’s stacks of fun!
World’s Greatest Shave’s official dates were 16 – 20 March 2022, but if another term suits your school calendar better, you can shave any day of the year!

Why get involved?
World’s Greatest Shave is a powerful way to unify your school community around an important cause and is a fun way to educate students about:
Walking around with shaved or coloured hair helps students learn what life might be like for someone who has gone through cancer treatment and is dealing with physical changes. It helps them better understand the difference between empathy and sympathy.
Students who take part often feel more connected to the wider community, acknowledging the differences between people and putting others first. They learn the value of selflessness and the beautiful feeling of helping those in need.
Students will feel a huge sense of achievement and success in committing to the challenge, with many describing their experience as empowering.
