Usually SunSmart sends information to the schools to help support the students.

This time, SunSmart is urging staff and parents to check their skin for signs of skin cancer and if you notice any changes to spots or new spots, do not delay and see your GP.

With two in three Australians being diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their life, early detection of skin cancer can be lifesaving.  

SunSmart has a range of resources and information about skin cancer, particularly what to look out for when checking your skin.
