Villa Maria Sunglasses

posted 14 Sep 2017, 02:35 by Michelle Virgona
Following the presentation at the P&F meeting in Term 2, it has been decided to introduce school sunglasses for sale through the uniform shop. UV exposure to the eyes in childhood has been well researched and can increase the risks of cataracts, macular degeneration, pterygium, photokeratitis and skin cancer of the eyelid and eye area later in life. These sunglasses will allow families to minimise UV eye exposure in their children if they wish.

The glasses will be in navy, have VILLA MARIA printed on the arm and have a space to mark with your child's name. They are made of durable polycarbonate and come with a matching case with a bag clip. They will be $15 each and samples are available in the office if you would like to have a look. They will be available to purchase in Term 4, but to aid with ordering, we would like to get an idea of how many people are interested in purchasing glasses. Could you please complete the survey below to help in our estimates. Please find the link in this week's newsletter.
