TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF OUR WONDERFUL SCHOOL
We recently held our parent working bee to complete works on our mural and indigenous garden. The weather was kind to us and we had a great turn out. Many thanks to all our families for their attendance and their efforts.
After a very disruptive year and two cancellations, we finally have the opportunity to hold our annual Athletics Day at the Tom Kelly Athletics Track - Rieschiecks Reserve. We are looking forward to a great day!
ENROLMENTS 2022 & 2023 NOW OPEN
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SHARING OUR SCHOOL WITH YOU
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.
