Week 2 – Term 3 2023

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

 

On Monday there was a public holiday to commemorate Remembrance Day. On this day, we remember and pay tribute to those Papua New Guineans who have fought and died in various wars over the years to allow us the freedoms we enjoy today.

 

Then on Thursday, 27th of July, a public holiday in New Ireland Province to celebrate New Ireland Day.

 

SCREEN TIME

 

Many parents are concerned about the amount of screen time their children have on various devices. Recent studies have outlined several detrimental effects that too much screen time can have on children and adolescents. The Australian Institute for Family Studies screen time guidelines, recommend:

 

  • no screen time for children younger than two years
  • no more than one hour per day for children aged 2-5 years.
  • no more than two hours of sedentary recreational screen time per day for children and young people aged5-17 years (not including schoolwork).
