Overweight School Bags - Taking the load off.

Overweight schools bags is a serious issue. Heavy school bags not only add to stress and fatigue of our school students but they can also have medical implications related to spine and lung functions. Therefore, from current academic year VonHayat school will be enforcing a weight limit for school bags.

After a careful study of the school weight recommendations in various countries we have set a maximum weight limit of 15% of the body weight. This will be applicable only on our junior school students as our kindergarten students already have lighter bags.

In order to reduce bag weight we have prepared a list of suggestions that can be accessed through school intranet. We look forward to parents' cooperation to keep our young learners happy and healthy.
