School’s long weekend ‘should be applauded, celebrated’ declares psychology expert

Schools are being encouraged to follow a Sydney school’s lead, and give locked down students a day off.

The Upper North Shore private girls’ school, Abbotsleigh, is offering students a long weekend next week, to allow a break from home learning.

Doctor of psychology and parenting expert Dr Justin Coulson backed the idea, telling Deborah Knight kids need a chance to relax as much as adults do.

“There are just some things that matter more [than school work].

“When it comes to being outside … nature is fuel for the soul.

“I think that [the break]’s reassuring, positive, and should be applauded, celebrated and modelled.”
