Exam Stress - Special Report

Students in their final year of school are considered a high-risk group for depression and anxiety. Sleep deprivation, diet and social media are some of the biggest issues faced by this group of teens. Therefore, it is vitally important that a student's mental health is looked after as well as their physical health. Keeping things in perspective for students and parents alike, can help prevent everyone becoming overwhelmed.   Although this final year is important, it is not necessarily the most important year of your child's life.school tv

There are many strategies that students can implement to help themselves. Parents can provide support, not only emotionally, but also practically by keeping their child well-nourished and encouraging physical activity.

In this special report, parents will find useful tips to support their child during this often stressful time.

We hope you take time to reflect on the information offered here and we always welcome your feedback.

If you do have any concerns about your child, please contact the school counsellor for further information.
