National SunSmart Schools Program


Students are in school when daily ultraviolet (UV) radiation levels are at their peak, meaning schools are uniquely placed to educate about sun protection behaviour, minimise UVR exposure and ultimately reduce a student’s lifetime risk of skin cancer. All Australian primary schools are encouraged to join the nationally recognised SunSmart Schools program.

There is also a SunSmart App

Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes wrinkles and skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer. Protect the skin you're in with the SunSmart app for iPhone and Androids.
The SunSmart app lets you know when you do and don't need sun protection, making it easier than ever to be smart about your sun exposure all year.
