Should start by cutting down any large trees nearby that are consuming all the available oxygen.

Overworked and undernourished ?

More students faint while at school
Health officials and authorities in Kandal province have concluded that a lack of stamina and calcium were the main contributors to the latest series of student faintings.

Colonel Sim Kheang, chief of Koh Thom district police, said 30 students fainted on Friday and 28 more students fainted on Saturday at Koh Thom High School.

Col Kheang said the students were sent to the district hospital on Friday and Saturday and have since recovered from the ordeals.

He said a lack of sugar and calcium was attributed to the decline in the students’ health, noting that mass hysteria also contributed to the incidents.

“The cause of the fainting was because of lack of stamina and lack of calcium,” Col Kheang said. “Some students are feeling better and have left hospital.”

Last week, nearly 100 students at Thamor Koul High School in Battambang province fainted, prompting officials to respond by educating students and faculty on how to safely prepare food.

The officials then concluded that the Thamor Koul students had little rest, did not eat enough, lacked calcium and were susceptible to mass hysteria.

I’m sure a test was about to be handed out and fainting seemed to be the best way out.
