On November 1st, men around the world begin the month long journey of growing a moustache. It began over 15 years ago with two friends talking about trying to bring the moustache back into fashion, but it quickly grew into something much bigger and much more important. Now, Movember is one of the largest global charities supporting prostate and testicular cancer research, men's mental health, and physical activity initiatives.
Teachers at SWIS have been supporting this effort for the past three years, and this year the tradition continues. So don't be alarmed when you see a number of male teachers (known as Mo Bros) beginning to grow a fashionable moustache! As well, our female staff (Mo Sistas) may also be seen wearing their own costume moustaches around school.
At the end of the month, students will be able to join in on the fun and fundraising by purchasing their own costume moustaches. Last year the SWIS community raised over 4000RMB! All money raised will be donated to the Movember Foundation
