Our Sunsmart Policy has been developed in line with recommendations of the Anti Cancer Council of Victoria.
It ensures that all children attending this school are protected from skin damage caused by the harmful ultra-violet rays of the sun.
As part of general Sunsmart strategies our school will have a NO school hat NO play policy by:
- Encouraging students to wear hats which protect the face, neck and ears whenever they are outside (e.g. recess, lunch, sport, excursions), and
- Working with the parent community to provide SPF 15+ broad spectrum, water resistant sunscreen for students and staff whenever possible.
