Goonawarra Primary School is a “Sunsmart” school.
We implement a “No Hat, No Play” policy.
In Terms 1 and 4 during recess, lunch, sport and excursions, all children must wear either a broad brimmed or legionnaire style hat that protects the face, neck and ears.
If your child does not have the correct hat at school, they are required to sit in the shade.
