After consultation with the children, we have developed the policy which applies to all children throughout the year.

Children may like to leave a hat at school to ensure that they are adequately protected and able to participate in the school sports program.

We have outlined the policy below.

  • We always wear a hat when playing outside.
  • We encourage everyone to wear sunblock when out in the sun or when at risk from UV rays.
  • On really hot days we play in the shade and drink plenty of water.

Owing to the allergic reactions of some students to sunblock, parents are advised to apply sunscreen to students before school. Where a student is able to self apply, individual sunblock should be sent to school.
