Remembrance Day 2018

Remembrance Day 2018

Remembrance Day 2018

Remembrance Day is a day to remember those who have fought and served our country.  Too many brave men and women have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom today.  Others like our great Uncle Leslie Winter Reid returned from the Great War to make a legacy that continues for our family today, LW Reid.

In 1919, a 24-year-old Leslie Winter Reid returned from the Western Front decorated as a pillar of the community with a British War Medal and a Victory Medal.  He made plans to create a business of his own. From the very start, Leslie’s mission statement was simple: Foster quality and service above all.  Leslie was supported in this business by one of his brothers, Herbert Preston Reid.  Herbert Reid would take over the business when Leslie died in nearly a century later, many things may have changed – but the mission statement of LW Reid has not: to outfit Australians with quality garments.

Today, the company that Leslie began as a family business has transformed into Australia’s leading uniform supplier, having clothed generations of Australians from shore to sun-drenched shore — expanding and innovating to become a respected manufacturer of stand-out corporate, sports and children’s wear. In fact, LWR is Australia’s leading supplier of uniforms for primary and high schools alike.  Our reputation for quality and reliability, built over generations, started with what one man thought was important: honesty, loyalty and trustworthiness, for one and all.

Made For School is proudly a family owned and operated business, and we continue to be grateful for the decision Uncle Leslie made when he returned.

Today we will remember him and the other brave men and women who have served and who continue to serve our country today, thank you.

Celebrating Girls

Celebrating Girls Day 2018

Celebrating Girls Day 2018

Today is International Day of Girls, a celebration aimed at raising awareness not only of the issues that Girls face, but also what is likely to happen when those problems are solved.

Earlier this year, we had a great celebration at the office when NSW Public School girl students benefitted from a change in policy many people were waiting to see.  The change in policy now allows girls to choose pants, shorts, skirts or dresses to wear as their school uniform.

At Made For School, we know that comfort and confidence in class means less worry about clothes and more attention give to learning.  We have always had a large range of School pants, school shorts, school skirts and dresses available online but it’s great to see our girls getting a choice.

Happy Girls Day, lets see what the next 12 months can bring.

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK

QUOTES ABOUT VOLUNTEERS

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK

Today kicks off the celebrations for National Volunteer Week.  This week is a time to recognise the hard work and contribution volunteers make to our communities.

Having just finished 3 years as our school P&C President I am well aware of the many volunteers in our school and others ensuring our kids have the best opportunities, environments and resources possible.  Everyone is time poor but the truth is without volunteers there would be a lot of things not operating.  Whether you volunteer with the kids sporting clubs, school, scouts, or the many other wonderful organisations in our society then you are making a difference.  Covering books, baking for the cake stall, selling raffle tickets, changing readers, volunteering at the school uniform shop, it all matters.

Today and every day we would like to acknowledge and give thanks to everyone who volunteers and makes sure our communities are the best they can be, thank you!
