Glenroy West Primary School is a 'Sun Smart' school. Broad brimmed school hats MUST be worn by students during Term 4. Students who do not have a school hat can purchase one from the uniform shop. Parents, please make sure your child's name is on their hat so we can return promptly if lost.
With higher UV levels from September onwards it is important to use a combination of sun-protection measures to minimise the risk of skin and eye damage and skin cancer.
Between 1 SEPTEMBER TO 30 APRIL when outdoor at GWPS it is COMPULSORY, that staff and students wear appropriate clothing that covers as much skin as possible and a wide-brimmed hat or legionnaire cap to protect the head, face, neck and ears.
Staff and students should also apply SPF 30+ broad spectrum sunscreen, use shade whenever possible. Students without appropriate hats must sit in the shade during their breaks, NO HAT! NO PLAY! NO SUN!
GWPS appreciates your support in our efforts to encourage your child about the importance of being SunSmart. GWPS wide-brimmed hats can be purchased at the school uniform shop.
