Our Games and Hobbies Club is being held in Room 10 each Thursday during lunchtime (1.10-2.00pm) during Term 3. Thank you to the generosity of our Community Engagement Group our students have made dream catchers, origami and to come later in the term is beading craft, rock painting and paper plane making. The fun games being enjoyed are chess, UNO, mastermind, rummy-O, snakes and ladders. Parents are welcome to come along for the fun and volunteer their time any Thursday!
Our students have made a video, narrated by two of our student leaders, Harry and Paula – who have thought hard about what they feel proud of about our school and what they want people to know about us!! We are very proud of our school, our students and staff and feel privileged to be a part of an amazing community. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about our school.
We aim to share information to communicate with you, and if you are not familiar with our school, our community and philosophies, we hope you will follow us and get to know us a little.
Ss Peter & Paul’s is a SunSmart School. We encourage you to apply sunscreen to your child during Summer. The hat is a part of our uniform and is compulsory for outdoor wear during the Summer months.
Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer.
UV cannot be seen or felt. It is not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s warmth (infrared radiation) which we feel. Our senses cannot detect UV so it can be damaging without us knowing. There is a huge variation in UV levels across Australia. The UV level is affected by a number of factors including the time of day, time of year, cloud cover, altitude, proximity to the equator, scattering and reflection.
A UV Index reading of 6 to 7 means a high risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure. Protection against skin and eye damage is needed. Reduce time in the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If outdoors, seek shade and wear protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. While your child may not wish to wear sunglasses at school, a hat is a part of our Summer school uniform and must be worn outdoors throughout Summer.
For more information about being SunSmart, the following resources are very informative.
