Now that the sun is on its way, it is important to think about protecting your children’s skin.
It is important to use a high factor sun cream (factor 25-30 for example) throughout the day to give protection to exposed skin. All children are required to wear a school sunhat whilst at play and during outdoor lessons during hot sunshine. These are available to purchase from the school office or direct from Pullen’s (01923 840050).
Children can easily become dehydrated when running around during break times or during P.E. when the weather is hotter. It is therefore important to keep fluid levels up. Please send in a sports bottle of water which pupils can drink during the day. This can be topped up using the drinking fountains. St. Helen’s College water bottles are available to purchase for £3 from the school offices.
