We are a SunSmart School
Check the SunSmart UV Alert daily for local sun protection times anywhere in Australia.
The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a major cause of skin cancer and the best natural source of vitamin D.
UV cannot be seen or felt and can be damaging even on cool or cloudy days. The sun protection times indicate when UV is forecast to reach 3 and above – the level that can damage the skin and eyes and increase your risk of skin cancer. The SunSmart app provides alerts when daily sun protection is needed and when it is safe to get some sun for vitamin D.
Children are required to wear sunscreen and a hat when UV levels are high.
