Sun protective clothing is included in the school uniform/dress code and sports uniform.
Students and staff are required to wear hats in terms 1, 3 and 4 whenever the UV level is 3 and above. Legionnaire, broadbrim or bucket hats are required when in the sun to protect the face, neck and ears. Hats can be any colour and may include logos providing they do not promote alcohol, drugs or make other illegal or inappropriate references.
All students working in the outdoors are required to wear hats, sunscreen and sunglasses. Rash vests or t-shirts are required for outdoor swimming.

Alternatively the free SunSmart App for Iphone and Androids is recommended and lets you know when you do and don't need sun protection making it easier to be smart about sun exposure all year. This information is also shared in our daily bulletin notices.
