At Whitney Street, we are Sunsmart Kids so you will hardly ever see us without our school hats on.
In the intense heat of the New Zealand sun, it is our policy for school uniform brimmed hats to be worn for protection during intervals, lunchtimes and all sport and P.E. activities. To make it even easier for everyone involved- they are compulsory in Terms 1 and 4. Hats are available to purchase from the school office at a very reasonable price. All classes have a bottle of sunblock but our students are encouraged be responsible and apply it at home as a part of their daily routine in the Summer Terms or have a stash of 30+ sunscreen in their bags.
