New resource for sun safety

The NSW Government has launched a new information pack that provides schools with the latest advice on sun safety.

The Sun Safety for Students guidelines, developed in partnership with the Cancer Council of NSW, offer practical advice on a range of sun safety issues including scheduling outdoor activities, shade, sunscreen, and school uniforms.

Schools can use the guidelines and support material to plan and implement comprehensive sun safety initiatives.

An information sheet for parents and carers is also available in 25 languages on the NSW Public Schools website.

The Minister for Education Adrian Piccoli said: "Most of the irreversible skin damage from the sun occurs by the age of 15, so sun safety is a responsibility that is shared by schools, families and communities".
