Sun Safety


Since children spend a large portion of the day at school, it is essential to provide a sun-safe environment. 

  • Encourage your school's parent advisory council to sponsor tree planting and to purchase portable shade structures. 
  • Involve students in planting, maintaining and checking the trees' growth as part of their studies.
  • To learn more about what schools can do to promote sun safety visit the SunSense program at the Canadian Cancer Society and the Sun Safety in Schools pages.
