Sylvia Harper, Aussie Tennis Legend


At Made For School we celebrate Aussie Icons through the names of our products.  Today on International Women’s Day let’s celebrate the achievements, determination and passion that made Sylvia Harper an Aussie tennis icon.

Sylvia was strong, determined and unrivalled, it’s easy to see why we named our latest dress after her, Harper Polo Dress.  Sylvia was born in 1895, she was rise through the tennis world showing her skill, talent and determination in every match.

Sylvia won the Australian Championships singles title in 1924.  In 1927 and 1930 she would take to the court and once again reach the finals, however she lost at these matches.

Harper also won the Women’s doubles titles in three consecutive years at the Australian Championships in 1923, 1924 and 1925. As Sylvia was smashing out history on the court, in Daking House, Sydney Lesley Winter Reid was starting our history as LW Reid.

In 1924, Sylvia Harper was ranked World number 10 in Women’s tennis.  In 2018, at LW Reid we celebrate over 95 years in business and continue to be inspired by many Aussies adding their story to our nation’s history.

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.

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?
