Our school is an accredited SunSmart school and the school’s sun smart policy helps protect our children from harmful sun damage.

All students must wear a school bucket hat or a legionnaire hat at all times they are outside from the start of September until the end of April. (Bucket hats have replaced the legionnaire cap as our official sunsmart hat, but the legionnaire cap can still be worn until replaced by the bucket hat. Bucket hats are available at the office or from Primary School Wear in Westwood Drive Deer Park.) Students without a hat will be restricted to sheltered areas during recess and lunch time.

Each classroom has sunscreen which children can apply prior to going out at recess and lunch time. We recommend that parents apply sunscreen to their children before coming to school and teach their children how to re-apply it themselves.
