The GIPS Sunscreen School Policy states:
Students must provide their own SPF 30 or higher broad spectrum, water resistant sunscreen. This is included on the school’s booklist each year.
Sunscreen is applied at least 20 minutes (where possible) before going outdoors and reapplied every two hours if outdoors.
Strategies are in place to remind students to apply sunscreen before going outdoors (e.g. reminder notices, sunscreen monitors, sunscreen buddies).
Please note that GIPS is not able to provide sunscreen for students. The Sunsmart widget at the bottom of the GIPS homepage can advise on the sun forecast each day. If you have any questions, please contact the office on 9885 3624, or speak with your teacher.
