(Bookings Closed for 2018)
Cancer Council ACT in collaboration with The University of the Sunshine Coast and Cancer Council QLD offers ACT secondary school students (year 9-12 only) and 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" 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 should 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.
To learn more about the UV (Sun) Camera and what the images show download the booklet from QUT Skin Cancer Awareness Program. Please feel free to share this booklet with students and teachers who will participate in the Sun Camera Classroom Experience.
