High school sun protection behaviours – we want to hear form you!
Parents often express their concern that their children are not receiving the same level of sun protection in high school as they did at their local primary school.
While there are many more challenges when it comes to students being SunSmart at secondary schools, growing community expectations exist for the well-practiced primary school habits to continue to be encouraged within the secondary setting.
As adolescents begin to take more responsibility for their own health behaviours, secondary schools provide the ideal environment to reinforce the importance of sun protection in a manner which can engage adolescents and help them develop skills to make healthy choices.
