Sleep for Health - 28 Feb

You’re invited to the first of our "Well-being" seminars for 2017 to hear how critical good sleep is to being top of your game. We all know sleep is important, but life in the 21st C is getting busier and busier. And time allocated to sleeping is often the first thing to be squeezed.

The CHS P&C are very pleased to present Dr Carmel Harrington, an internationally recognised expert in the field of sleep research, to speak to our Chatswood High community on the importance of sleep. Carmel is a consultant to numerous health and biomedical companies and specialises in paediatric and teen sleep health. She is an honorary research fellow at Westmead Childrens’ Hospital, and a founding member of the Australian Sleep Foundation. Carmel has written two best-selling sleep books, The Sleep Diet and The Complete Guide to a Good Night's Sleep.

Parents and students are invited to come along and hear this crucial message.

When: Tuesday – 28th February at 6pm
Where: School Hall

(This will be followed at 7pm by a Study Skills session for years 11 & 12, and a BYOD session for year 7 & new students)

Did you know that:

  • 50-80% of adolescents (aged 15-18yrs) and 30% adults are chronically sleep deprived (sleep less than seven hours per night).
  • Did you know it is better to get 1 extra hour of sleep before an exam, than stay up and cram.
  • Did you know getting a good night’s sleep will improve your ability to score “3 pointers” in a basketball game
  • Research also suggests a lack of sleep is a causative factor in obesity.
  • It is crucial to physical and mental health, our ability to think and learn. It is vital for optimal exam performance.

Too little sleep and we will feel unmotivated, depressed or grumpy and we will not have the energy to meet the challenges of life.

Sleep is essential to our mental and physical well-being - so important in fact that it should be thought of as our third pillar of health. Along with food and exercise, good, quality sleep enables us to be the best we can be.

The P&C is sponsoring a number of initiatives in the area of student welfare in 2017, with the introduction of a workshop series that is aimed at helping students, parents and staff. Other topics being covered this year include Respectful Relationships and Internet & Gaming Addiction.

    Volunteers Wanted

    Volunteering in the uniform shop is a great way to get to know the school and community. You will get to know our group of friendly and dedicated volunteers. It is not all work as we get together twice a year for social events, usually to try out multi cultural food and cuisine that the volunteers made from home. You may take a look at "What we do" at the uniform shop events. Come in and we'd love you to join our big uniform shop family.

  • What is the Parent Network?

    The parent network co-ordinators for each year group maintain a list of contact details of all interested parents in their year group. This list is circulated to those on the list, enabling parents to be able to contact other parents in their child's year.

     

    The parent network co-ordinators may organise social events during the year, send information emails, and ask for help at certain school functions.

     

    How do I join?

    Fill in your details or email your network co-ordinator or fill in a hardcopy form that is available at the school office.

  • Would you like to get more involved but not sure where you fit?

    The P&C has a variety of functions and there are many opportunities to get involved: view the list of roles within the P&C.

    For further information about any of these roles, please contact the President  or the Secretary .

     

    Uniform Shop Volunteers

    Volunteer in the uniform shop on a regular basis.

    Please note that a Working With Children Check (WWCC) is required for all volunteers. See more on our info sheet.

    Apply online for your WWCC - its free and can be used for other organisations that require it from you.

     

    Committee Members

    Come along to the general P&C meeting - there are 2 meetings each term on either a Tuesday or Thursday night.

    Join one of the P&C committees - uniform, fundraising, building - and have a say in how things are run.

     

    Parent Representative on Teacher Interview Panel

    Would you like to represent the parent body on teacher interview panels as required? There is a small amount of training to do first.

  • The P&C supports the school with specific projects and events where the school cannot afford the cost, but these projects can only go ahead if the P&C can afford it.

     

    Parent Contributions

    While funding is sought via grants and sponsorship for specific projects where appropriate, parents are asked to contribute to the P&C to enable these projects to continue. Suggested contribution amounts are:

    Building Fund (Tax Deductible): $150 per student

    General Fund: $90 per student

     

    Contributions can be made with your school fees.

  • The P&C has gathered resources from various speakers and these are available for parents - please see the Parent Resource page.
