August spells Hats On for all ACT schools!

Welcome back to Term 3.

Yep- You have heard it all before, to prevent skin cancer adopt a combination of the 5 sun protection behaviours when UV levels reach 3 and above, regardless of age! 

Well in the ACT, that time is between August and May! The beginning of August signals the start of sun protection in Canberra school settings, this is because we start to witness daily UV levels climb to 3 and above….. it may not be all day, but it will be for part of each day……ie lunchtime!

August signals Hats On again for all Canberra primary schools and early childhood services.

But don’t take our word for it! Download the free SunSmart App today and if your school hasn’t already done so, please upload the free SunSmart Widget to your school’s website.
