We start counting down to the start of school! How ready are you?
We have some last-minute preparations checklist for you. Check against what you have completed!
- I have gotten the compulsory textbooks and workbooks from the bookstores.
- I am aware of the missing titles and know when they will be in stock.
- I have sat with my child in preparing what will go into his/her schoolbag on Friday- Required textbooks or workbooks?- How many exercise books will be needed?- Stationery all in place?
- I have made sufficient space for him/her to organize his/her books and do homework.
- I have reminded my child to take note of changes in this coming year.
- I have made sure that my child can fit into his/her uniforms and shoes comfortably.
- I have prepared his/her uniforms, shoes and socks for school. (don’t forget the school badges, ties and name tags!)
- I have informed him/her where the uniforms and shoes are placed.
- I have his/her hair and nails cut nicely.
- I have spoken to my child and agreed on the amount for pocket money.
- I have made plans for any after-school care and my child is aware.
- I have discussed with my child about balancing school work and play time.
- I have spoken and addressed the concerns he/she has about school.
And on the final day before school….
- We have the school bag packed nicely and ready.
- I will have him/her to rest early.
- I will make sure the alarm clock (with battery) is set before he/she goes to bed.
- I have planned the wake up time with ample time to wash up, have breakfast and travel to school on time. (good to have a little buffer)
- I have prepared a good breakfast for tomorrow!
Get your child excited yet organized for the start of school. A good morning sets a good start to the day. A good first day sets a good start to the year!
