In This Together

I know that many parents will have read the article in the Good Weekend, a few weekends ago, about teenage girls and sleep. I was particularly interested in this article because of our own research, conducted last year, which noted that half of all of our students from Years 4-12 say that they don’t feel refreshed when they wake in the morning. Around 40% of secondary school girls say that their sleep is disrupted by devices at least some of the time during the night.

Here is a link to the article in case you missed it:

Sleep is so important for growing bodies and minds. It is important to help every young person know that they will do better at school work if they have a good night’s sleep. They will also more likely flourish as people – strong, resilient and emotionally healthy!
