  • Getting the most out of sunscreen

    With the UV index soaring over summer, now is an ideal time to make sure students know how to protect themselves and are taking the sun safe message home with them over the summer holiday period. Whilst a lot of young people rely on sunscreen for UV protection over summer, many are not applying it in a way that achieves maximum effectiveness. For some handy tips on sunscreen application please see Cancer Council NSW’s newsletter section which can be adapted for your own school newsletter.
