A good night’s sleep lays the foundation for a great day ahead.
Sleep, or the lack of it, was one of the most important physical and mental health issues facing senior secondary students today even before COVID19 hit.
And now COVID19 offers a further range of challenges, but also opportunities, for students in terms of their sleep patterns.
A good night’s sleep lays the foundation for positive physical and mental health as well as cognitive performance.
Getting adequate sleep can help students to
