P-05-931 Sun cream in schools

This petition was submitted by Leigh O'Connor having collected a total of 120 signatures.


Text of Petition             

​All children are at risk when in school or on school trips of sun burn. This not only has short term health issues but also long term such as skin cancer. This could easily be avoidable by allowing schools to apply sun cream with parents' consent. There are many options for this that do not involve the teachers having to touch the children if this is an issue.
