FFS Friday – Back to School

18 Jan

Today I am trying out a FFS Friday

Basically it’s where you get to have a rant. As my brain is gearing up for the start of the school year mine is going to be about all the children starting school this year.

I have seen school shoes on sale for $6.00.  These are a great buy but if you buy them DO NOT expect them to last the year. Yes, they will eventually fall apart. DO NOT come and whine to the teacher that your child is too rough on their shoes. FFS


DO NOT buy the cheap $2 coloured pencils.  They will break and require 10 times the amount of sharpening as other pencils do – thus meaning they will be used up quicker. FFS

Buy a spare school hat.  People DO NOT steal school hats but they do get left places.  On average it takes a school hat about a week to circulate back to the owner. Buy a spare hat. FFS


Some kids eat lots at school, some kids don’t eat a thing. It is OK. Your child will not starve and NO the teacher will not sit next to your child to watch that they eat all their lunch! Let the teacher enjoy their 15min lunch break in peace! FFS

Yes, the teacher will fill up your child’s water bottle if empty, No we do not provide chilled rain water! FFS

and finally

Yes, it takes your child 30 min to pack their school bag at the end of the day, NO, the teacher will no pack it for them.  They will get quicker as the year progresses if they learn to do it themselves! FFS

Gee, that feels good to get that off my chest!

Have a great Friday!
