Community links and partnerships

The school community involves more than just students and teachers; it encompasses anyone involved with the school or its members.  For example, family/whanau, local store owners, cleaners and bus drivers to name a few.  Ensuring that your wider school community members feel a part of the school and support your initiatives is important. 

With regards to sun safety, positive changes in behaviour are far more likely when a student goes home to a family that supports and role models sun safety behaviours, and to a community where sun safety is promoted.  The links below provide information on how to work with your wider school community to promote sun safety.

For sustainable change, it is also important to embed sun safety messages and practices into Curriculum, teaching and learning and School organisation and ethos.
