    This workshop was held at the Graaf Huyn College during an informative meeting for parents on what influences school performance. One central keynote was held, after which a number of workshops were given of which this was one. The workshop was about sleep. Specifically, I discussed what sleep is, what the sleep pattern looks like, how light is related to sleep, why sleep is needed, what sleep patterns look like in adolescents, what the effects of sleep deprivation are in adolescents, what the effects of sleep deprivation are on school performance in adolescents, and what influences sleep in adolescents. I provided the parents with a brief, but complete overview of sleep, the effects of deprivation, and how sleep is influenced in adolescents.
