Sun Hats at School? By Tyissa

We did Exposition writing in term 1. We had a workshop on how to write an opening statement using a rhetorical question. The students did really well at this and were able to use research to support their opinions. Here is Tyissa's writing on should we have to wear sun hats at school. What is your opinion on the topic.

Sun Hats
Do you want to be a one of the people diagnosed with melanoma (skin cancer)? Over 4000 New Zealanders are diagnosed every year with melanoma. Do you want to be one of these people? I agree that sunhats should be compulsory in New Zealand schools. Firstly, hats can stop you from getting sunburnt. Secondly, it should be a compulsory requirement at our new Zealand schools Lastly, some hats  can be a big fashion statement.

So to begin with there are a lot of people in New Zealand that are diagnosed with melanoma (skin cancer) each year, even each day, so how do you think we can decrease this ? Well did you know that sun hats can do a lot to help you to prevent yourself from getting melanoma. Hats stop the sun from beaming onto your face and burning your nose which is one of the most common places where you can get melanoma. Sun hats should be compulsory at our New Zealand school!

Secondly, I strongly believe that wearing sun hats at school during lunch and morning tea should be a compulsory rule. Kids needs to be protected because their skin is more delicate and burns easier than adults skin so if kids keep putting their hats on it becomes a habit and then they are protecting themselves without even thinking about.

Lastly, not only can hats protect you from the sun it could also be a fashion statement you can support your local teams and even other big teams by wearing their hat like the chicago bulls ect , it can go with your outfit and you can show your individuality.

So in conclusion, I am adamant that sun hats should be compulsory in our New Zealand schools. Some hats can actually be apart of a big fashion frenzy and should it be a rule at each school because melanoma can kill people. So, I strongly recommend to go out and buy you a sun hat today!
