SunSmart

SunSmart LogoIn terms one and four, all students must wear the Mellons Bay school wide brimmed hat. If students come to school without a hat they must stay in shaded areas whilst outside, or the library is available during lunchtime as an indoor shade option. We encourage parents to ensure their child wears sun screen prior to coming to school and also provide a small tube in their bag for use at school.  We have sufficient shaded areas but continually assess our shade needs.  In 2013 the school became accredited by the Cancer Society Auckland as a SunSmart school.
