Dear Parents/Guardians,

SunSmart recommends that all early childhood education and care services and schools develop and implement a comprehensive sun protection policy to reduce UV exposure and associated risks. SunSmart recomends wearing a wide brim hat and also sunglasses for outdoor play.

Glen Iris Primary School is offering families the opportunity to purchase sunglasses for students to wear. They are fully compliant with the highest AS/NZS 1067.1:2016 UV rating, and feature:

  • An individual panel for your child’s name to be written for easy identification
  • A durable hard cover case with bag clip with an I.D panel for identification
  • A microfibre cleaning cloth
  • Category 3 UV protection
  • Three sizes that comfortably fit all shapes and sizes for primary school students
  • Polycarbonate lenses that absorb more than 95% of solar UV radiation

Former GIPS Physical Education teacher Nathan Gilliland is the founder of S4K and is proud to offer the GIPS community with a safe and practical solution to protect student’s eyes.

*If families would like to purchase the S4K sunglasses, we have selected Navy Blue as our preferred school uniform colour.


Examples are at the front desk for you to try. Purchases of S4K sunglasses can be made online at
