All children must have a hat to play outside. It is also essential that all children wear enclosed shoes. Sneakers and socks are the best option as we have many sporting activities.
Parents are reminded that sun safe, appropriate outdoor clothing (i.e. which covers children’s shoulders) is to be worn at all times to minimise the risk of sun exposure. This means no sleeveless tops. Sunscreen will be provided to children.
