As part of our Healthy Schools work, we are trying to raise awareness of how to enjoy the sun safely.
Reports have shown shocking increases in cases of skin cancer; many adults who are diagnosed with skin cancer believe that the damage was caused when they were children. Cornwall has exceptionally high UV levels and it is important we all take action now to prevent further damage.
As a tool to help keep our children ‘Sun Safe’, the P.T.A. has purchased a selection of bag charms. Each of these contains UV sensitive beads which change colour when UV levels are high. This reminds the children to apply sunscreen before going outside.
We are also selling kits that contain enough beads to make a bracelet.
If you would like to purchase a bag charm or bracelet kit (£2 per item), please place monies in an envelope labelled with your child’s name and class and take to Mrs Dewsnap’s classroom.
