Sleep lessons for teenagers

15th March 2010

A charity has set up lessons in order to teach teenage pupils at schools in Glasgow how to get enough sleep.

A recent survey showed some teenagers were only getting four or five hours sleep per night. Sleep Scotland advised that pupils should be getting nine hours rest every night. The charity's lessons will show teenagers how to set up a night time routine.  Jane Ansell, director of Sleep Scotland, said: "You wouldn't send somebody to school without having the right amount of food, so why would you send them without enough sleep?"
