Everybody experiences challenges and difficulties. You can help yourself by making sure that you sleep well, eat a well-balanced diet, avoid too much screen time, do a physical activity and manage your time and homework deadlines.
If you have a problem you can’t fix on your own speak to an adult you trust – a parent, carer, family member, member of school staff, doctor or our school nurse. The school health nurse can be contacted in school Tuesday lunchtime in the Pod.
