Screen Dependency Day
On the 20th November we held a ‘Screen Dependency Day’ as part of the PSHEE programme in the Senior School.
The focus was not on educational screen use, but on the dangers of over indulging in recreational screen time. We were lucky to have Dr Aric Sigman relay his wealth of knowledge to our Middle School pupils as well as Senior School parents in the evening. After hearing about the medical implications that result from screen addiction, pupils discussed the information in ‘reflection sessions’ where they were asked to make some screen resolutions and think about changing their daily routines.
It was an insightful day, not just for the pupils but for all the staff involved and gave us a chance to reflect on our screen time and how we can take control of it.
