Back to school tips

The school holidays are winding up and it is time to get back into a routine of packing lunchboxes and backpacks.

Parents need to ensure their children are organised before school kicks off so we have put together some tips.

Kids grow fast. Check that their school uniform and shoes still fit. Are there any visible signs of wear and tear that require an item to be replaced or mended?

Check school bags and lunchboxes are in working order and put together a shopping list of snacks that your child would like to take to school.

Children always have homework to complete. Make sure there is an area of the home that is dedicated to their homework and ensure the space is clear of distractions.

Involving your children as much as possible in school preparation helps encourage and grow their independence and confidence.
