VIDEO: L.V. Rogers staff get new looks

The school met its Terry Fox fundraising goal, which also met a change in style for several staff

Hats off to L.V. Rogers staff, although they may want to keep their hats on for the time being.

Principal Tamara Malloff and teachers Simon Liddell, Graeme Marshall and Kristina Lidstone were given new looks last week in front of LVR students who hit a fundraising target and sent $3,723 to the Terry Fox Foundation.

Malloff and Liddell were shaved, while Marshall and Lidstone will be considering what in their wardrobe goes with new hair colours. Custodian Neill Clarkson meanwhile was taped to the gym wall and family youth worker Kathy Centrone committed to not speaking for the entire day.
