Sunsmart

School Student with Hat

Killara is a “Sunsmart” school.


We implement a “No Hat, No Play” policy. In Terms 1 and 4 during recess, lunch, sport and excursions, all children must wear either a broad brimmed or legionnaire style

hat that protects the face, neck and ears.


If your child does not have the correct hat at school, they are required to sit in the shade.


To further ensure sun protection, we strongly recommend the application of broad spectrum sunscreen (SPF30+) before school and re- application during school.


If your child brings sunscreen, please ensure it is of the ‘roll on’ variety, with the container clearly labelled. Your child will also need to be able to apply it.


Please discuss with your child the importance of playing in the shade on hot days and having frequent drinks of water.


The school uniform broad brimmed hats are available for purchase from the uniform shop.


The school newsletter and school assemblies will be used to highlight and reinforce the Sunsmart policy.
