Abbotsford Is Sun Smart

On the 15th March 2010 Penelope ( from the Cancer Society) came in and
awarded Abbotsford School an updated Sun Smart Award for being a Sun Smart School. She also gave us a tree to plant for shade, sunscreen, a sun smart sign, and a U.V. Index board. She talked about the U.V rays and how New Zealand is known for high U.V. rays around January and how we are lucky to have so many trees and shade to sit under. The House Captains planted the tree with Mr Scoullar our new caretaker!
We really appreciate her coming and awarding Abbotsford School the Sun Smart Award!
