Anzac Day 2017

Anzac Day 2017

Anzac Day 2017

Anzac Day is a day of remembering and honouring all Australians who have served and died in war or whilst serving our country. The spirit of the Anzac lives on through the many stories we share through the generations and indeed in our service men and women today.  The Anzac qualities of courage, sacrifice and mateship continue to be woven into our national identity and today we honour those who have served and those who have sacrificed for our freedom and the Australian way of life.

Our Great Uncle, Leslie Winter Reid served in the Australian Army in the first world war before returning back to Australia and starting up our family business, LW Reid.  Today, we continue to work with the values that Leslie established the business with; quality and service above all.

Today as families remember those who have served and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, we will remember Leslie Winter Reid and the many other family members who have helped shape our nation and protect our freedom.

Lest we forget.

Don’t Be Left on the Hop

School Uniforms Online

We’re enjoying the final days of the holidays and are gearing up for term 2, I don;t want to be caught on the hop with the change of seasons!  This weather has been sensational but with term 2 starting for us on Wednesday I am more than aware that Jack Frost is coming along with foggy starts, minus temperatures and warmer clothes are a must!

We need more than a few layers to keep the kids warm and snug for school and the sidelines, but I’m amazed that my kids have managed to grow a foot in 6 months.  We’ve enjoyed the late start to the cooler weather and have managed to get all the winter uniforms ordered, delivered and washed while the sun is still giving some warmth.  If you’re yet to embrace the change that’s coming then I say stay outside and enjoy the weather while we take care of all the kid’s uniforms.

Made For Carnivals

Swimming Carnivals

The excitement of the kid’s swimming carnival is consuming our house.  They are madly practising their house chants and ensuring they have everything in red for the big day on Friday!  At Made for School, we make sure you’re covered for every school event, from excursions to camp, to sports uniforms and house colours so our gear is Made For Carnivals as well.

Over the past few years of carnivals, I have learnt a few things that have made the day a little easier.  Swimming carnivals provide the most challenge because the kids need to change at some point.  Our Petrie Waterproof excursion bag is perfect for keeping things dry so I pack one for each of the kids to put their wet swimmers in.

We are all red in our family but no doubt that will change for high school.  Red works well for us as I’ve kitted the kids out in their favourite red gear.  Miss 10 loves the Wylie T-Shirt, it’s so soft and easy to pull off and on as her races are called.  Master 8 prefers our classic Higgins Polo and I enjoy the added protection on his neck when the collar is flicked up.  Both of these shirts are available in lots of house colours and are made from UPF rated fabric so they love the carnivals as much as the kids.

Master 8 can’t move past the Richards Rugby shorts, they are his favourite.  The drawcord waist keeps them where they are meant to be and the zippered pocket means he can have some tuckshop money for after his race.  Miss 10 can’t decide between the Lee Skirt and the Ross Microfibre Shorts.  Both of these are so comfy for sitting by the pool but I’m going for the shorts as they will keep a little more of her legs covered on the day.

This year Master 8 will be wearing our Baker Microfibre Legionnaire Cap as I know he is bound to get up to some water flicking during the day and this new cap can handle a few splashes.  Miss 10 will be wearing her favourite, the Gosse Microfibre Bucket Hat because this hat can cope with the many varied hairstyles that she comes up with.

Now that I’ve got their gear sorted and they have their chants, the only thing left is to practice diving and strokes so they can have a great time at the carnival on Friday.

Are you ready for the carnivals?

Embracing the School Year

Mindfulness with Kids

Embracing the School Year

Week 2 has started for us and I must admit last week was a struggle.  Adjusting from 6 weeks holiday straight back into the school routine has taken its toll.  As much as we were organised with school uniforms, routines and a stocked freezer I didn’t do any mental and emotional preparation and that was evident at the end of the week.  Come Friday afternoon we had exhausted kids and one Mumma who was on the brink of a meltdown.

Smiling Mind is a great mindfulness app which we use infrequently with the kids.  Last week, ABC and Smiling Minds shared a great mindful meditation to help our kids tune into their emotions.  Mindfulness is a great tool for all of us in a busy switched on world and this meditation is one you can do together as a family.

My aim this week is to be mindful and start the day positive and focused with the aim of changing our Friday afternoon up.  So this week I will practise this meditation with the kids a couple of times and see if we can identify emotions and stay present rather than getting carried away with large emotions at the beginning of another school term.

Do you practise mindfulness in your family?

School’s Back!

School Starts

School’s Back!

It’s the first day of term 1 for us and many other families in NSW and around Australia.  While I’m reluctant to go back into the routine, I am ready for the kids to head back into the classroom for another year of learning, discovery and growing.

My kids have mixed feelings about a new year and indeed today.  Who will their teacher be and who will be in their class?  My main concern is will they bring everything home and survive the first day of school in nearly 40-degree heat?

We have everything ready and today I will try and remember to capture their annual photo by in our doorway so we can see how they grow and change over the years.  I’m sure I’ll struggle to get back to a quiet house and will fall into the trap of looking for them more than once.  3:10 pm will come around all too quickly and once again we will back in the swing of another school year.

If the kids come home without a hat or worse don’t forget our Free Shipping ends on 31st January so jump online and grab the extra supplies.

We wish all the kindy and year 7 families, a successful transition to big school.  For all the families with kids returning to school, stay strong and enjoy the routine for another year.

Class of 2017 Are You Ready?

Class of 2017 Are You Ready?

Class of 2017 Are You Ready?

Queensland families are the first to kick the school year off as term 1 starts for them today.  The rest of the country has a staggered start, but for us, next Monday is fast approaching.  We’re at that stage in the holidays where the kids need some extra challenges and more people to play with.  I’m ready to send them back but also reluctant to start the year because it means back into the routine and another year will soon fly by!

This week I will be focusing on getting back into the routine, writing out our lunch menu ideas, so lunchboxes don’t become stale by week 3 and finalising all of the school uniforms.  While it’s still in the 30’s, we are very used to a quick chilly change in the next 2 months, so I’m going to make sure we have uniforms to cover term 1’s weather and activities.

There is no better time to set yourself up for term 1 and beyond with school uniforms because all orders over $110 receive Free Shipping when you purchase your school uniforms online with Made For School.

Term 1 always has a long start as we all get back into the routine.  That often means that things go missing and the first thing to take an excursion in our house is the kid’s hats!  Our winning hat is the Gosse microfibre bucket hat.  It’s soft, squashable, washable and the crown cord holds it firmly on Miss 10’s head no matter what hairstyle she has.  I’m also going to get a couple of lightweight jackets for when the cool afternoon and morning breezes begin.  Sure it’s not likely to happen anytime soon but it seems to catch me off guard every year, not in 2017!

Free Shipping means you can have all your uniforms sorted in a matter of minutes.  Jump online and check out our extensive school uniform range.  We’ve got you covered from head to toe with hats, polosshirts, skirts, shorts, skorts, pants, jackets, jumpers, socks, bags and more!  While you’re there be sure to check out our clearance items and bag a bargain as well.

Enjoy the last week of the holidays and get ready for term 1 and enjoy Free Shipping on all orders over $110.
