Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Thanks to those parents who attended the initial meeting last term. The next meeting will be advised by the committee once a date has been confirmed.


A Good Night’s Sleep


It is important for children to have a good night’s sleep. There is no magic number for exactly how much sleep we need, but the Australian Centre for Education in Sleep (ACES) suggests the following as a guide:


Primary school: 10-12 hours per day


High school adolescents: 8-10 hours per day


Adults: 7-9 hours per day
