As part of this promotion there were several competitions all promoting the 5 ways to be SunSmart;  Slip on a shirt, Slop on some sunscreen, Slap on a hat, Seek some shade and Slide on some shades. 

The ‘Most SunSmart Learning Team’, with a great SunSmart slogan was 8H, led by Ms Blakely, who won 100 group B points for their team as well as get into the local pools free card, kindly donated by The Aquatic Centre.

There were many other individual SunSmart winners on the day who had all 5 SunSmart principles in place. These students won an assortment of prizes kindly donated by Chemist Warehouse in Mitchell St.

There was also a ‘hat lotto’ for students spotted wearing the correct wide brimmed hat, the students drawn received a refreshing icy pole from the kiosk.

Finally the winning teacher for 2014, being an excellent role model was Mr Slingo.

It was great to see so many students and staff looking after their skin while they put their all into swimming and cheering!
