Complete Your 3Yr SunSmart Review

Welcome to your school’s 3 year SunSmart Policy and Program Review (membership renewal). Upon successful completion, Cancer Council ACT can confidently renew your school’s nationally recognised SunSmart status for another 3 years. It is recommended that the Principal, Deputy Principal or an Executive Teacher completes and submits this online form.

Please note that your school's national SunSmart status is displayed on Cancer Council ACT's website in acknowledgment of its efforts and contribution in combating skin cancer in the Canberra region (click on SunSmart status link below).
