Tips to ready your household for the school year



Getting ready for the school year can be a daunting task, but with a little planning and organisation, you can make it a smooth and stress-free process. Here are some tips to help you get your child ready for the school year. Make a list of all the supplies your child will need for the school year, including textbooks, stationery, and any other materials required by the school. If you have been trying to get your family to get inspired and if you seem to be overwhelmed with their lack of motivation and have run out of options, then this is the article for you. 

Stationery shopping has been known to improve the productivity of learners because of the mere fact that they are excited to make use of their new “toys”. This, however fleeting, is a good enough reason to amp up your stationery shopping game. Another way to get your family eager to learn is to change their routine at home, incorporate reading into their everyday routine, and make homework a family exercise. For example, while the kids are learning algebra, the parents can sit at the table with them and read a novel or complete a crossword and show interest in what it is they are learning while at the table. 

Stationery secured 

Think of the saying “a kid in a candy store” – that is the feeling that Typo conveys to all of its customers. With incredible merchandise, fan-favourite apparel and quality stationery, this store is a treasure trove of novelty collectables. If you are shopping for stationery, there are odds and ends, trinkets, and bells and whistles for the whole family, from trademarked notebooks to pencil cases of every shape and size, pens, pencils, erasers and backpack stuffers of all sorts. Prepare for your kid to be the whizz of every class because the secret is out; Typo is putting the cool into school with their must-have essentials to be ready for every test. 

If you need to make sure the entire family is prepared for the new year of setting and achieving goals, then PNA is the place for you. With stationery, books, arts and crafts and study essentials, PNA has it all. Does your kid have an arts and crafts school project due? Not a problem; simply make your way to Hyde Park Corner and have a look at PNA’s collection of paint, clay, and brushes. You can even put some ease into your art and purchase an easel. However, if it’s stationery you need, there are loads of pens, pencils, crayons, highlighters and everyday essentials to set your little Einstein up for academic success.

Head over to Pick n Pay and collect the essentials to be ahead of the curve for the new school year. As South Africa’s leading retailer with over 50 years of experience, Pick n Pay has been providing households with the best in stationery, groceries, clothing and everyday essentials. Prepare healthy meals and snacks in advance to ensure your child is well-fed and has the energy to focus on schoolwork. This might include packing lunches the night before or having breakfast items ready to go in the morning. Make sure your child has all the necessary clothes and shoes for the school year, including uniforms if required. This might include new clothes, shoes, or sports equipment.

Legacy of literacy

The gift of reading is a timeless passion that should be passed on to every generation. And with over 70 years of experience in the literary retail industry, Exclusive Books has seen generations of readers through school, university and later adulthood. With the most impressive collection of books to choose from, the entire family will be begging for a trip to Hyde Park Corner’s book stores in Johannesburg to step into a new world of fiction, poetry and prose. Set up a designated study area for your child, with a comfortable chair, good lighting, and a quiet environment. This will help them focus on their homework and give them time to read a novel or two with ease.

Final words

Start shopping for supplies early, so you have time to find the best deals and avoid last-minute rushes and organise your school year early with stationery and organisational items from these stores.
