Staff learn about effects of video games
Ettalong Public School staff recently visited Brisbane Water Secondary College Woy Woy campus to attend a presentation on the effects of video games on children's brain development.
"All staff attended the presentation and listened to guest speaker Ms Jill Sweatman, who provided lots of interesting information on the effects of computer games on young children's brains," said principal Ms Lynn Balfour.
"Jill is a retired teacher who answered questions and shared her experiences of possible side effects from these games.
"In the afternoon, our staff returned to our school to receive more interesting and useful information from Eva Brzozowska, from our district office in Tuggerah.
"Included in Eva's talk was information to assist students to gain maximum potential out of their education, including their involvement in extra-curricular activities and excursions," Ms Balfour said.
