BSB teachers and their moustaches really grow on you.
This year nearly a dozen teachers were growing moustaches in support of the Movember Charity.

Many of the BSB teachers (and subsequently the teachers' spouses) put forth an effort to raise awareness for men's health in general and to raise awareness for men’s mental, prostate, and testicular cancer health.
What is Movember? (Taken from the Movember Foundation website https://hk.movember.com/about/foundation)
“Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent. THAT’S WHY WE’RE TAKING ACTION. We’re the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.
We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. We continuously challenge the status quo, and invest quickly in what works. In 15 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.”
Remember if you are not well, go to the doctor. If you are male and have been unwell for a while, get to the doctor now, don't wait.
