As a proud SunSmart school, students are required to wear broad-brimmed hats or bucket hats outside. Students without an appropriate hat will be asked to use shaded areas or suitable areas protected from the sun.
Too much of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause sunburn, skin and eye damage and skin cancer. UV damage accumulated during childhood and adolescence is associated with an increased risk of skin cancer later in life. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Australia. It is also one of the most preventable cancers. You can’t see or feel the sun’s UV. Whatever the weather, if the UV levels are three or more, it’s important to Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide!
Families are encouraged to access the daily local sun protection times via the SunSmart widget on the school’s website, free SunSmart app, sunsmart.com.au or bom.gov.au.
Hats may be purchased from our uniform supplier, Noone.
Noone's hours are Monday to Friday 9 am-5 pm and Saturday 9 am-12 pm.
