MANAGING THE PHYSICAL HEALTH IMPACTS OF COMPUTER USE ON CHILDREN
WITH PHYSIOTHERAPIST AND PARENT: GREG CAMPBELL B App Sc (Physio)
Wednesday 18th February 2015, CLGPS Gym 7-8pm
RSVP by Monday 16th Feb 2015
Tablets, laptops, desktops, phones, hand held devices are now common place for the school aged child both at home and at school. Our children don’t consider these devices as “technology” just “their stuff”.
- Are you concerned with the amount of screen time that your child is having?
- Do you know how to correctly set up their ergonomics?
- Are you aware of the long term impacts of their IT use on their physical health and wellbeing?
Poorly set up laptop, tablet and desktop computers for children may lead to poor postures, neck, back and shoulder pain and headaches. Smart Health Training & Services (Smart Health) has been investigating the research that relates to the physical health impact of computer use on children for over 3 years. Over that time Greg Campbell has worked in schools delivering seminars and resources to school communities with students from years 1 to 12 as well as teachers and parents on these issues, working with schools to find long-term sustainable solutions. This seminar will present the solutions that are most pertinent for schools and parents who are supplying their students/children with these devices and share successful approaches that have been taken at other schools.

On Thursday this week we are having a clean-out of our unused furniture shed. We have ordered a big skip and plan on throwing out a lot of broken furniture.
However, we also have some surplus items that aren’t broken and may be wanted by families for their sheds or cubbies, such as big wooden shelving and little chairs and tables.
Have a look on Thursday morning and take anything next to the skip that you want on Thursday. Any items remaining go in the skip!
