Hair cuts at Hervey Bay Special School

16/02/2012

​Our dedicated and generous hair stylist COREY from ‘RnR hair designers at Peppers’ came regularly last year to keep our students looking smart with the latest hair styles and he has kindly agreed to return this year to provide this service. He has a good understanding of how difficult it can be for our students to go and sit in salons out in the Community for this invasive procedure. The ordeal can be extremely stressful for parents too. By cutting hair at school, the students are comfortable in a very familiar environment surrounded by supportive staff, peers and favourite motivating items to help distract when necessary.
This week there was a breakthrough moment for our new student, Christian who has never had his hair cut by anyone other than Dad and even then it could be a rather traumatic event. Thanks to some special time on his favourite App on the class iPad and the familiarisation of having watched other students go through the experience and come out the other side in one piece, Christian was totally relaxed. We were amazed and so were Mum and Dad when presented with a new look Christian and photographic evidence. Well done Christian, you made our day!!!  and a BIG thank you to Corey.
