School day starts too early

Mill Bay Age 9 – Thank you for letting me express my opinion!

I’m a Grade 4 student from École Cobble Hill. Over the past few years I’ve been noticing that school has been starting earlier and earlier and earlier. I’ve also noticed that kids have arrived at school looking very tired and hungry. I think the reason for this is because school starts way, way, way too early (8:15 a.m.).

My mom recently told me that we are mammals and mammals hibernate during the winter. So I think we should get one more hour of sleep. Many of my friends agree that school should start later.
