Going back to school after the summer holidays might be the last thing on your mind right now, but being fully prepared for the big return is the best way to avoid any stress. Sure when it comes to your school bag and pencil case you might think you’ve got the new school term covered from last year, but first ask yourself this: Are you really 100% ready?
Don’t forget there are a whole host of things to take into consideration, from getting back into a school routine so that your first day back goes swimmingly to making sure your uniform is cleaned, ironed and ready. But arguably the most important factor is ensuring you have all the necessary equipment to hit the ground running. Writing pads for English lessons, a protractor for maths and a set of pencils for art are all must-haves.
