Head of an independent school organisation has recommended that pupils study *7 hours a day* over the Easter holiday period, putting massive stress on pupils and perpetuating the idea that they shouldn’t have the genuine time off for rest and relaxation.

This is on top of the stress that pupils already face through exams and day-to-day work. And it must not continue! How are you enjoying your learning if you’re expected to have no rest?!!
Please leave a comment if you wish and we will have a discussion about how to fight this stress.
