Parents asked not to give students 'energy' drinks

Woy Woy Public School has asked parents not to send students to school with "energy" drinks or sugar-sweetened drinks.

"There has been a recent increase in the number of students bringing Prime drinks to school," said school principal Ms Ona Buckley.

"Prime Hydration drinks do not align with NSW school values.

"Water is actively promoted as the drink of choice at all NSW public schools.

"Sugar-sweetened drinks and energy drinks are banned in school canteens and vending machines on school grounds.

"Energy drinks are not recommended for children.

"This is part of the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy, co-developed by the NSW Department of Education and NSW Health and implemented since 2017.

"Please support us in encouraging students to only bring water to school in their drink bottles."
