SunSmart behaviours at school
Why schools are a priority setting.
• Reducing exposure to UV during the first 15 years of life greatly decreases the risk of skin cancer
developing in later life
• Children attend school during peak UV hours. When UV levels reach 3 or above, sun protection
is recommended for all skin types.
• Schools can influence children’s sun protection behaviours through education and role modelling
