Roslyn Primary School is a registered SunSmart school member committed to ensuring students and staff are protected from too much UV which can cause skin and eye damage, and skin cancer.

Our school uniform includes covering clothing and sun protective hats, and we have shade spaces for students to access.

From mid-August (exact date to be set by the school annually) to 30 April, all students must wear a
sun protective hat that shades the face, neck and ears for all outdoor activities. Hats may also be
worn for all outdoor activities outside of the August to April time period, by parent or student choice.

SunSmart recommends SPF30 or higher broad spectrum, water resistant sunscreen be applied to the skin not covered by clothing. Our school implements strategies to help remind students to apply sunscreen before heading outdoors. Sunscreen is included as an essential item on our book lists.
