Ponytail Project

The Ponytail Project is special to SCOTS PGC.  Last year, you may recall that six courageous ladies from our Year 12 class cut off their ponytails to support the Cancer Council, QLD in their quest to raise funds and help make a difference to those who have been directly impacted by cancer.

Well, this year we have raised the stakes and seven brave SCOTS PGC students will be continuing the Ponytail Project legacy by lopping off their locks in the name of cancer research.  Amelia Meek, Bridie Shooter, Jessica Brierley, Emily Rhodes, Barbara Geach, Aiden Diack and Amelia Spriggs will be cutting off their extra-long ponytails at a special assembly on 18 October, so before they make the big chop, they are seeking our help to raise the much-needed funds to support their cause.

There are many ways we can help, here are just a few:

  • Purchase a ticket in the Ponytail Project raffle – the first prize is a patchwork quilt, hand made by our very own College Captain, Emily Rhodes. Tickets can be purchased from the main reception for $1.00 each.
  • Support Casual Clothes Day – On Monday 14 October, wear your casual clothes to school for a gold coin donation.
  • Make a donation – Our Ponytail Project girls have a fundraising support page where online donations can be made. All you need to do is click on the green ‘Give Now’ button to enter your donation details and offer a message of support.


We are very proud of the girls and their commitment to support such a worthy cause – Well done!
