Be Sun Smart, Play Sun Smart
The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation is both a major cause of skin cancer and the best natural source of vitamin D. A healthy UV exposure balance helps maintain vitamin D levels and minimises the risk of skin and eye damage, sunburn and skin cancer.
At Shine, we are an approved Sun Smart service and encourage all children to actively learn about the importance of being sun safe. Children are provided with an interactive sunscreen station and sun smart wide brim or legionnaires hats.
