    Question Preparing for School.

    DD is starting school on Jan 31st, and I'm trying to get everything organised for her as I'm having my bub on Friday (c/s), so will be out of action for most of the rest of the school holidays.

    I've bought her uniform, school shoes and sport shoes. She has a special new lunchpack and drink bottle, and Nana (my mum) will be taking her out schoolbag shopping when she comes to visit from NZ in a couple of weeks.

    I've ordered a label pack to name all her stuff, which either I or DP will do when the labels get posted out.

    She doesn't have a stationery/book list as yet, apparently we get that in the first week of school.

    I can't help feeling like I've forgotten something?
    Any ideas on anything else we may need to do / get for DD's first day/week?

    thanks

    Sounds like you have everything sorted... I can't really think of anything else. Did she need a library bag or art smock or anything? Although that will possibly be part of the book list... I always buy DD hairclips and hairbands in the school colour too, if you haven't got anything like that...

    Good luck with everything

    Sounds like you've got everything material sorted. One thing I would suggest, if you or your mother can manage it, is a couple of trial runs with her lunchbox and drink bottle. I did this with my kids by having a "picnic" lunch with them a couple of days to make sure they could manage to open and eat what I was planning to put in their lunch box. It just easily be done at the lunch table at home - just with lunch packed in their box.

    I have taught kindergarten in the past, and it's time consuming for the teacher and embarrassing for the kids when they can't open a packet of chips, unwrap their sandwich or work their drink bottle, or something like that.
