Thursday Assembly: VG- Reducing Screen Time

24 Jan 2019

The Thursday assembly presented by VG was on ‘Reducing Screen Time’. The presentation started off with a well acted and very realistic role play in which a mother’s instructions falls on deaf ears as her children are too busy playing online games. This was followed by the students taking turns talking about the negative impact of excessive screen time. The audience was given facts such as: Girls between the ages of 9-12 who spend time on social networks have lower self esteem;Screen times is one of the main causes of obesity and it leads to language delays and lack of leadership skills. The presentation ended with the students taking a pledge to cut down their screen time. Later in the day, they went from class to class asking children to join them in their pledge.
