The boys uniforms are polo shirts, they have 4 shirts, 4 shorts each. They are really good quality and don't stain and neither do they need ironing. Having 3 boys I don't worry too much about them growing too quickly as they get passed down. Ds2 has ds1's uniforms from kindy and pre primary.

DS has been in prep this year (WA, first year of full time school). We don't have an outside clothes line, and I didn't want to get stuck with things not drying in winter, so I got 5 each of shirts, shorts and long pants, plus 2 sports shorts for DS. I got a bag of things second hand, so just bought him pants, 2 new shirts and shorts new. And I was naughty and got target pants and shorts as I wasn't going to spend $50 on ONE pair when I could spend $50 and outfit him for the year! They grow so fast that I can't justify spending $300 on uniforms that will only last him a year! The shirts will do him next year as well as got a bigger size, but he will need new bottoms this year as has grown so much.
People have already said my main suggestions - lunches the big before and a spot for bags etc. also be prepared for all the things they bring home. So much art and things they have made! I've noticed DS is really tired towards the end of term. And his behaviour also isn't great because of it.
We don't do after school activities as live out of town and the options here are a bit limited too. Nothing he wants to do is at a good time! Not worried at the moment as his day is already long (8-4) with the bus ride, but will look into something next year I think. DD goes to kindy next year (5 days a fortnight) which she will love too. Then both my babies will be in school and I'll have free time. FREE. TIME. I might be able to read a book! Or do craft! Woohooo!

My kids were exhausted and played up.
I've been homeschooling for a few months now and it's the best decision I've ever made.

My son is at Prep (QLD) this year and my daughter starts next year. Setup sounds very similar to yours with an 8:45 start and 3pm finish and breaks at around the same time.
I was told my son would get tired, he didn't. He has never at any point seemed tired or past it at all. We continued to do our normal swimming lesson on a thursday afternoon, and take my daughter to ballet on a tuesday afternoon, and for one season he also did football on a friday afternoon. I think it depends on the individual child and what they are used to, but he has never been tired from school. He's active from the time he gets up at 5:30am until he goes to bed at 7pm, every single day! He's crazy. It will be interesting to see if my daughter does the same. I can't really see her getting particularly tired out at school either. She is going to be the baby of the class though, so we'll see how she goes!

My daughter starts prep next year and luckily I will be on Maternity leave for the first 9 months of her school year so I won't need to use before or after school care. Once I go back to work in October I'm going to try and rearrange my hours so they'r only going to before school care and not after on my work days.

But I think after care is so different to the rest of the day at school because it's all free play. So it's a different type of tired- not so much mentally taxing.
