The count down is on to back to school time. We just get over Christmas/New Year and then jump straight into the chaos and expense of preparing to get the kiddies off to school again.
We have put together some information to help make Back to School a little bit easier.
Do you have a little one off to school for the first time? I do (though I am trying not to think about it, it’s too soon to cry!). NSW Dept. of Education has put together a great little booklet with some handy info for new parents.
Back to school dates
Back to school dates vary from state to state and between Public and Private schools, many states returning on the 29th-30th. Check the details for your state or check out the noticeboard outside your school for details.

Personalised kids labels
Personalised labels are a great way to help protect all the expensive uniforms, stationary and other bits and pieces the kids need for school (and seem to be very good at misplacing!)
I have been looking around for some myself this week, and have decided on Bright Star Kids labels. They have a great range of stickers and iron on labels at great prices. What I love best about them, that I haven’t seen the others offer is their split value packs. So you can order a value pack, and split it between 2 names. Along with super fast FREE delivery, if you order is over $20 you will receive 40 tiny pencil labels FREE for each name in your order. So check out Brightstar Kids.
