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.
For more information about being SunSmart, the following resources are very informative.
