From Tues 12th October the Clonard Sunsmart bucket hats will begin to be dispersed to all students via your Wellbeing teachers.

These hats are now a compulsory part of the Clonard uniform and are to be on your person and worn at all times during Break 2 (recess) and Break 3 (lunch) when in direct sun.

The bucket hats or caps should also be worn when outside for any classes Eg. Pe, Outdoor Education, Wellbeing etc.

It is important that you label your hat with your first and last name. The hat should be kept in your locker on a daily basis.

During Wellbeing classes this week you will watch a video on the importance of being Sunsmart.

If hats are lost or misplaced it will be up to students to arrange a replacement from Noone’s uniforms.

Students without hats will need to move to shaded areas during breaks.

We acknowledge that this is a change to how we wear our hats at Clonard and it is in alignment with a commitment to health and wellbeing and keeping ourselves safe.

NOTE: Hats are compulsory for Terms 1 and 4 at Clonard.

**Thanks for your cooperation in launching this new item to our Clonard uniform.**
