North Easthope School students surround the cycling team from the Pedal for Hope Cops for Cancer tour on Friday morning where they presented a $10,000 cheque to the Huron-Perth branch of the Canadian Cancer Society. The 150-student school raised the money by hosting a garage sale, spaghetti dinner, chocolate bar sales and bake sales. Principal Teresa Sargent had her hair cut and dyed into a red mohawk when the school reached its $10,000 goal. The school that raises the most money per student will earn a smart board from the tour. The smart board is an interactive electronic teaching tool with a large, touch-screen display that connects to the Internet.
