Limiting screen time for students is a must

Students in schools are spending far too much time looking at screens. It’s not just because of virtual learning either. Far too many of them have become addicted to their cell phones. Adding another three to four hours via virtual school is not helping their eyes, posture or their emotional well being. Constantly viewing a screen for fear of ‘missing something’ and not being connected 24 hours a day is an issue. Schools not having in-person or face to face learning is not helping the situation. That said, it is safer and necessary to reduce the transmission of Covid-19 virus.

The Norwood Pentecostal Church

Setting off into the unknown, which is essentially what most of the earliest settlers to this area did, required a great deal of courage; for many pioneers of the era this courage was fortified by a strong Christian faith. Faith, that the risks and their labours would provide them and their successors with a better life then if they had remained where they were. While the traditional old tyme religions such as Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian and Roman Catholic were the most common denominations of our forefathers, there were also small groups of followers of the “more evangelical” faiths such as the Baptists and the Pentecostals. The “newest” of these to this area is Pentecostal.
