School goes Suns­mart

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The sun came out from be­hind the clouds as Ti­tahi Bay School be­came ac­cred­ited with the Can­cer So­ci­ety’s SunS­mart Schools pro­gramme ear­lier this month.

With the Can­cer So­ci­ety back­ing the last part of the ac­cred­i­ta­tion – bucket hats for ev­ery child – the school has now shown com­mit­ment to pro­tect­ing stu­dents, staff and par­ents from UV ra­di­a­tion.

School prin­ci­pal Kerry De­laney said the hats would stay at school.

‘‘ Our sun pol­icy means we can’t let chil­dren out­side to play in terms 1 and 4. Now ev­ery­one will have a hat.’’

Some hats were do­nated by a par­ent, and Ms De­laney also scoured sec­ond­hand shops for hats – a big task with 412 stu­dents at the school.
