Recently, the St Eugene College Parents and Friends Association (P&F) were awarded a 2014 SunSmart Grant of $2,372.50.
This amount of money plus more funding from the P&F, has enabled us to purchase six new Portable Sun Smart Shelters with matching Banners and Flags for each Spirit house. The Spirit Houses are Dunlea-Blue-Pelican; Mitchell-Red-Lorikeet; Ryan-Green-Bobook Owl; and Carroll-Gold-Kookaburra. These portable sun shelters are in the colours of red, blue, gold and green with their matching bird emblems.
The Principal had this to say, “ This will provide additional sun protection, for our students and community at all school and community activities. This project is part of the colleges continued focus, which values the importance of providing a safe learning environment. As a community we are very aware of the necessity to do all that is possible to reduce the exposure of the staff, students and our college community to ultra-violet radiation.”
The UPF50+ Marquees, Banners and Flags were designed and Manufactured by Star Outdoor who are endorsed by the Cancer Council. The Finance Secretary at St Eugene College was responsible for writing up the successful application for this Grant.
