CANSA Port Shepstone visited Port Shepstone High to create awareness as part of its SunSmart Suncreen campaign.

Sesethu Senene of Cansa said the campaign encourages people to apply sunscreen when in the sun.

“We visited Sheppie High and told the pupils and staff about the dangerous effects the sun has on the skin and encouraged them to apply sunscreen as the sun can cause cancer,” she said.

Senene also advised the school to buy sunscreen for pupils and said Cansa will be visiting more schools with the intention of making everyone aware of the dangers of the sun.
