Playground Duty Hats

Ok ladies, let’s be honest. Is your playground duty hat well past its expiry date?

Has your hat lost its shape and the colour faded? Or are you a beginning teacher and uncertain about choosing a suitable playground duty hat?

If you answered yes, then this post is for you (me too, I have had the same hat for four years).

When choosing a playground duty hat, the most important things are comfort and sun safety.

Your hat must be comfortable, as you could be wearing it for up to 30 mins while on duty, or longer if you are attending a sports day. Before going on duty, I always put on some sunscreen and take my sunglasses. You can head to the Queensland Government’s Project SPF for some great tips on staying pretty forever.

I have chosen my top 10 hats for duty this year and all of them can be purchased from Westfield Chermside.

    To all the pre-service teachers out there getting ready to go on placement soon, you may just need to read this blog on some guidance on the perfect playground duty hat.
