Back to School Must Haves!

Posted 30th Jul 2021


Are you starting to get the kids ready for heading back to the classroom? Well, the Bon Accord centre has everything you’ll need! It’s your one-stop shop for everything from uniforms and PE kits to bags, lunch boxes, stationery and everything else your children will need when they go back to school. Here’s just a few of the many things you can pick up on your next trip to the Bon Accord.

Dressed to learn

Chances are the kids have grown over the summer holidays, which means it’s time to pick up new school uniform items, including footwear. Making sure you get clothes that don’t just look smart but feel good too will help make the end of summer not quite so sad for the wee ones.

Pack it up

A good school bag will be able to carry the essentials, look cool on the playground and not cause back or shoulder issues.

Ready for lunch

We all wanted a cool lunch box when we were at school – but even if we didn’t get the style du jour, that doesn’t mean that our kids can’t have a great lunch box. It also has the added benefit of cutting down on single-use packaging.

Prepared for revision

And when the time comes for studying, having the right paper, pads, cards, pens, pencils, folders and other stationery will help keep things organised. And a good tote bag is a great way to carry extra books and notes when your kids are on the go.
