Host a Sun Camera Classroom Experience 2018

Available Monday 30 April to Friday 11 May (2 weeks only) 2018. 

Cancer Council ACT in collaboration with The University of the Sunshine Coast and Cancer Council QLD is excited to once again offer ACT secondary school students (year 9-12 only) and all teachers a special opportunity to undertake a UV Digital Imaging Photograph to assess solar induced skin damage to reinforce the importance of sensible sun protection measures. 

If you would like to host a "Sun Camera Classroom Experience" between Monday 30 April and Friday 11 May (first 2 weeks of Term 2, 2018) please complete and submit the booking form below to register your interest (please note that you will receive an email confirmation of your preferred booking time and date next week- the last week of Term 1). Also please note that students wishing to have their photograph taken must have signed parent consent

Due to limited time only 1 session per school year can be booked. 

Students who have their photo taken on the day will also be given the opportunity to take a photograph of their image (with their phone) so they can share their image with friends and family! Due to time constraints only a limted amount of students per session will be photographed. Please note that no identifying student information will be recorded, this is strictly an educational activity to highlight how UV exposure has already reacted with young skin.

If you have any questions or require more information please contact Cancer Council ACT's SunSmart Services Coordinator. Or call Cancer Council ACT on 6257 9999.
