I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for dealing with the extreme heat. I know it’s going to be extremely hot on Monday and Tuesday, and I’m in an area with a red weather warning and level 4 heat health warning.
I cope very badly with the heat and my school is terrible at helping us with keeping cool. This week, even though it’s been comparatively mild, it’s hit 30 degrees in some of my classrooms and it’s barely tolerable. I dread to think how bad it will be over the next few days - I wouldn’t be surprised if the inside temperature exceeds 40C. The teachers have fans but keep them pointed at themselves and they don’t reach the rest of the class anyway, so they’re almost useless. Opening the windows does nothing.
Last month, I nearly collapsed when I stood in the sun for too long, and I really don’t want the same thing to happen again. I can barely drink anything at school because we’re not allowed to go to the toilet in lessons and we only get two chances to go during the day.
I’m pretty scared of falling ill, given how sensitive I am to heat and the fact that my school is doing nothing to help. What can I do?
