Back to School - it's in the bag!

Getting the kids ready to go back to school?

We’ve got all the back to school essentials at Parkmore Shopping Centre from shoes, to uniforms, backpacks, stationary and lunchboxes . Help your little one get excited by involving them in the shopping process. Ask them to help you create the list of things they need, and make sure you check with your school for any requirements.

Make sure your child has a great start to the year by sending them to school with the right bag.

Here are some things to consider when choosing a backpack:

  • Is it the right size? Make sure the bag can fit books, laptop, lunch, spare clothes if required.

  • Is there a water bottle holder on the outside? You’ll want this if your drink bottles have a habit of spilling.

  • Is it well made? Make sure you invest in a quality bag if you want it to last the year.

  • Does your school have a policy around types of bags allowed?

  • Does your child love it? They’ll be carrying it all year so it’ll help keep them excited if they love how it looks! 


Whether you're buying for function or style there are a huge range of backpacks available to choose from. Here are some of our picks.
