The boys are off and running with their laptops in the Middle Division. For many in Forms 6 and 7, this is the first year they’ll take their laptops home and manage them on their own with support from you and their teachers. Thank you very much for helping your son adjust to these new expectations.
As part of your son’s first timetabled ICT class, he was asked to complete a survey with you about household agreements for using his laptop at home. Upon reviewing the survey results, one trend is apparent: many students intend to use their laptops primarily in their bedrooms. This also seems to be the favoured place for charging laptops overnight.
Given the age of the boys at the Prep, we’re somewhat concerned about this trend and are asking you to please keep these two points in mind:
A study published by the American Academy of Pediatrics found that screen time in the 90 minutes prior to sleeping delays the onset of sleep. Amy McCready summarizes the research and provides some helpful suggestions in her blog post, “Screentime before Bedtime? One simple tweak for better behaved kids”.
