We look forward to our next Transition Session for our Pre-School enrolments on Tuesday 8th May and Tuesday 29th May, between 10.00 - 10.30am.
Story Time is an informal session to be held in the School Library, which will be a wonderful way for 2019 Prep students to get to know us a little and start feeling comfortable at school.
Anyone who is interested in enrolling in SSPP in 2019/2020 is welcome to attend!
Together with Manningham City Council we are excited to be running the Intergenerational Gardening Group here at SsPP, named Growing Together. The program will be overseen by Manningham Council's Social Group and we see this initiative between the school, council and our senior community members as a wonderful spirit building project in many ways!
We aim to share information to communicate with you, and if you are not familiar with our school, our community and philosophies, we hope you will follow us and get to know us a little.
Ss Peter & Paul’s is a SunSmart School. We encourage you to apply sunscreen to your child during Summer. The hat is a part of our uniform and is compulsory for outdoor wear during the Summer months.
Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer.
UV cannot be seen or felt. It is not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s warmth (infrared radiation) which we feel. Our senses cannot detect UV so it can be damaging without us knowing. There is a huge variation in UV levels across Australia. The UV level is affected by a number of factors including the time of day, time of year, cloud cover, altitude, proximity to the equator, scattering and reflection.
A UV Index reading of 6 to 7 means a high risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure. Protection against skin and eye damage is needed. Reduce time in the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If outdoors, seek shade and wear protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. While your child may not wish to wear sunglasses at school, a hat is a part of our Summer school uniform and must be worn outdoors throughout Summer.
