Foundation Resources

The foundation program “Fun in the Sun” introduces students to the key behaviours involved in sun safety. In the Foundation year, children will be educated on core messages while learning about their environment and how to be safe playing outdoors.

Year 1 Resources

In the year 1 program “UV Aware”, student learning is extended to include an understanding of UV rays and safe times of day to be out in the sun. This builds upon the general sun safe behaviours taught in the Foundation year to set students on a path to solid sun safe awareness, practice and attitude.

Year 2 Resources

In “Let’s talk Sunscreen”, year 2 students are inspired to become sun safe through developing their understanding of how sunscreen works.
