This follows Friday's year 12 auction for drought relief and the Shave for a Cure day earlier this month.
"We had 16 kids, most of whom were girls with long, long hair, who did the shave and they raised $9500, it's the biggest result we've ever had," Mrs Parrett said.
"I'm so proud of the young people for stepping up and doing things for the community, it's completely student-owned, it's not driven by staff, it's driven by the kids."

On Friday, April 5, Mrs Parrett and the nine other Border identities in the Cancer Council NSW's Dance for Cancer will perform their newly-learned routines at the fundraiser's gala night.
"You know what, I'm having the time of my life, it's such a nice thing to do," she said.
But with husband Jim having lived with prostate cancer since 2010, she never forgets the reason behind her dance lessons.
"It's great to have some research around cancer to improve things," she said.
