What's on..

Road Safety Petition

Our Elected parents have launched an online petition in the hope of getting a response from local authorities regarding additional safety measures on Anzac Parade. LCS has been requesting these road safety changes for many years without result. We are counting on you to get as many signatures as possible.

Feel free to share the petition!

SunSmart

Because of the Earth’s elliptical orbit around the sun,  Australia’s proximity to the equator and the clearer air in the southern hemisphere, then sun here in Australia is harsh! The Australian Government has developed a public health plan called SunSmart, which includes the famous five steps to protecting ourselves from the sun’s rays. 

We also advise you to read the recommendations of the NSW Department of Education about sun safety at school.

At school, make sure your children's clothes are always sun-safe and appropriate for learning and playing. Wear clothes that cover as much of your skin as possible, for example, shirts with collars and long sleeves. Check clothing for an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF), a guarantee of how much UV protection the fabric provides.

Make sure to apply sunscreen in the morning before coming to school, students will then reapply before going outside during the day. There is a tub of sunscreen in each classroom, but feel free to bring your own if you have sensitive skin.

On the weekends and holidays,  use a generous amount of sunscreen. Make sure your skin is clean and that the sunscreen has dried at least 20 minutes before you go outside. An adult should use approximately one teaspoon of sunscreen for their head and neck, one for each arm and one for each leg, and two for the torso. All in all, that's about seven teaspoons (35mL) for a full body application. Reapply every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating. Lastly, remember that sunscreen is not a suit of armour and you should always use other sun protection measures as well.

Wear a broad-brimmed hat which shades your face, nose, neck and ears, the common areas for skin cancers. Regular caps and visors simply do not provide enough protection. Our school uniform includes a hat that our students can wear at school. Remember; no hat - no play.

In the school playgrounds and courtyards there are several different shaded areas for the students to play in. Outside of school, stay out of the direct sunlight by sitting under trees, building shade structures, or bringing your own sunshade tent or parasol. Shade reduces UV radiation, but it can still reach you via reflection. Use all the sun protection measures you can as a combination of several will be most effective.

If you wear sunglasses and a broad-brimmed hat together, you can reduce UV radiation exposure to your eyes by up to 98%. You should always wear sunglasses outside during daylight hours. Opt for close-fitting, wraparound sunglasses that meet the Australian Standard AS/NSZ 1067.
