About Us

The SunSmart schools programme and website are run by the Cancer Society of New Zealand.  The programme was started in October 2005. It is currently aimed at primary and intermediate schools. The programme is based on the SunSmart schools programme in Victoria, which is seen as the "Gold Standard" by the World Health Organisation.

 The Cancer Society of New Zealand is the leading organisation dedicated to reducing the incidence of cancer and ensuring the best cancer care for everyone in New Zealand.  The Cancer Society is a non-government funded organisation. We have a National Office located in Wellington, six regional offices and 15 centres, all involved in raising their own funds and providing local support services.
