HUNDREDS of students at Corinda State High School have shown how they can apply themselves, after an attempt to break a unique Guinness World Record.
The school's hall was filled with the smell of summer, as students and teachers gathered to smash the record for most people applying sunscreen simultaneously.
The rules were simple: at the same time, participants had to continue to rub sunscreen on themselves for a minimum of two minutes.
Year 12 student Daniel Gibson was one of the school captains who organised the event and said he was confident the current record of 681 people would be broken.
Corinda State High School educates about 1650 students.
"We searched online for a Guinness World Record that the school might be able to achieve." The 17-year-old said.
"The sunscreen record also gave us a chance to promote the theme of sun safety across the school."
The record was attempted last Friday, during the school's final day of term.
Mr Gibson said it was great to see the students and teachers take part in the event so enthusiastically.
