Mum Says It’s School’s Responsibility To Ensure Kids Don’t Get Sunburnt!

Mum Says It’s School’s Responsibility To Ensure Kids Don’t Get Sunburnt!


A mum says she’s annoyed at her 8 year old’s teacher for letting him get sunburnt at school. She believes it was the teacher’s responsibility to remind her son to put his hat on before going outside on a 33-degree day.

Sharing a photo on Facebook of her son’s burnt scalp she says she’s annoyed the school took no measures to ensure he stayed safe while playing outside. The mum took to social media to ask whether or not others agreed that it was the school’s responsibility to keep him from getting burnt.

“The school should be reminding students,” the Victorian mum wrote. “I’m pretty annoyed that in 33 degree heat my child’s school didn’t make sure he had sun cream or a hat on at lunchtime.” She added in the post “ I know he’s 8 and should do it without reminder, but he doesn’t always”.

The poor 8 year old was left with a bright red scalp and a sore head which could only be treated with regular Nurofen and Aloe Vera spray. Taking days to get back to normal, the mum says she was stunned by the teacher’s response to the burn.
