A REMINDER THAT PROTECTIVE SUN HATS ARE COMPULSORY IN TERM 4 AND TERM 1

Caulfield Junior College recommends that from mid-August to end of April, and whenever UV levels reach 3 and above, students come to school wearing sun-protective clothing and sunscreen.

Excessive exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause health problems including sunburn, damage to skin and eyes, and an increased risk of skin cancer.  

UV radiation:

cannot be seen or felt

can be reflected off surfaces such as buildings, asphalt, concrete, water, sand and snow

can pass through light clouds

varies in intensity across the year (highest in Victoria from mid-August – end of April)

peaks during school hours

Enjoy the great Australian outdoors and stay safe!
