Are you Ready for the New School Year?
Posted 08/27/2018 02:05PM


After many summer months of staying up late, kids are in for a big adjustment as they head back to school. To help your child transition back to waking up early, it's important to help your child establish a new sleep routine. Start with going to bed one hour earlier every night and waking up early until the routine is established.

It is still the high peak of Hand-foot-mouth, flu in Shenzhen. Please pay attention to your child's health condition. If they feel unwell, please keep him/her at home and see a doctor as soon as possible. Have a look at the "Health and Safety information" on the SWIS website. You can find more the details there.

Hand-washing is the best way to prevent many types of infections, and is especially important after using the bathroom and before eating. Parents should explain to children why it's important to wash their hands, and should set a good example by following a hand-washing routine at home.

To help children grow healthily, we recommend your child to have his/her regular health examination. It is recommended to do the health examination at the beginning of each new school year. Below are some suggested health check programs: general physical examination,optic examination, assessment of immunization status and recommendations about the child's health needs.

Undergoing an annual health examination provides us a great opportunity to know more about our children's health conditions. Make an appointment with local clinics/hospitals or consult your family doctor. Ask for their professional advice and keep a healthy lifestyle.

让身体适应新学年的开始

随着新学期的来临,暑假期间学生们晚睡晚起的作息状态要结束了。学生应为学校的正常学习做好准备。为了帮助学生尽快适应早起,家长可以帮助孩子建立新的睡眠习惯。建议可以把睡觉时间提早1小时,起床时间也稍微提前,直至新的作息习惯养成。

夏季是深圳手足口、流感等传染病的高发期,请留意孩子们的健康状况。如果他们出现传染病的症状,请留在家中休息并及时就医。请查阅学校网站上"健康与安全信息"的相关内容,您可以获得更多关于什么时候学生应留在家中的资料。洗手是预防各种感染性疾病的最佳方法。特别在使用洗手间后以及就餐前都应彻底地洗手。请家长向学生解释洗手的重要性,并在家中示范正确的洗手方式和规律。

每一学年的开学是孩子做健康检查的最佳时机。我们建议的体检内容包括:

一般身体检查、 视力检查、 免疫状况评估、根据孩子个体需求的项目。每年的定期健康检查给家长和学校提供了一个深入了解孩子健康状况的机会。请预约相关医院、诊所或咨询你的家庭医生,由他们提供专业议建和帮助你完成它。
