Summer cover at Nana Glen
NANA Glen Public School has joined the Sunsmart primary school crowd.
Mid North Coast Cancer Council representatives presented the school with the Sunsmart signage and teaching resources at their assembly on Wednesday.
This free national program provides schools with sun protection guidelines, policy and curriculum resources. Regional programs co-ordinator for the Cancer Council on the Mid North Coast, Vanessa Crossley said they also wanted to promote the program throughout the Mid North Coast.
“An added initiative is that schools who sign up to the program in Term 4 will be eligible to win a grant for a ‘Sunsmart’ swimming carnival,” Mrs Crossley said.
“Schools that signed up in Term 3 across NSW were eligible to win a $500 Bunnings voucher and Nana Glen won one, so they were presented with that also.”
Sun exposure in the first 15 years is linked to increased likelihood of skin cancer as an adult.
