The sun protection times from the Bureau of Meteorology tell you the time of day UV levels are forecast to reach 3 or higher. At these levels, sun protection is recommended for all skin types. In Victoria, UV levels regularly reach 3 or higher from mid- August to the end of April.
As part of general SunSmart strategies, our school:
- Requires all students and staff to wear hats that protect the face, neck and ears (legionnaire, broad-brimmed or bucket style) and suitable clothing whenever they are outside (e.g. recess, lunch, sport, excursions)
- Requires children outdoors without hats to sit in a designated shaded area, during play times from the beginning of September to the end of April or whenever UV levels reach three or more. NO HAT- NO PLAY
