I've been on this forum for a few years now,and every year someone asks where to get trendy, practical, not toooo expensive school bags, and there is always advice on buying plastic wallets ( foolscap, not. A4).

Where are all the new year 7 mums and dads? Are they more clued up then us parents in the past ?

Surely someone must have a question about starting senior/ secondary/ high school?

Just bought the plastic folders, some from Tesco and some from Staples.

Succumbed on the school bag and went for the Superdry option for DS1 - eyewateringly expensive but I have held out until Yr9 so I don't think I've done too badly!!

We can always revive the "covering books with plastic" thread if you like? That was one of my early forays into EPE :lol:

You and me both, doodles. My children openly laugh at my love of a neatly covered book as I try to wrestle them off them. However I do have a year 7 who may be easier to trick into handing them over :D

actually I've been asked by my soon to be year 6 girl for either a trendy bag or a plain one she can cover in badges and charms etc because she has SOOOOOO outgrown High School Musical. I suggested she could cover their faces in badges etc. She is having none of it.
any advice welcome - I'd like a wipe clean satchel type one - not a handbag

Sorry Penguin, can't help on the DD front, only DS's here.

One has managed to wrangle a S....dry bag out of me and the other one has a school regulation bag - that is bliss I can tell you, one trip to the school shop and all school "luggage" purchased for less than the price of aforementioned bag......

My soon-to-be year 5 DD tied a trendy triangular scarf around the HSM picture on her satchel-style school bag! It looked very effective. Just had to keep redoing it as when it slipped down you could see Zac peeping over the top - a dead giveaway! 8)

Thank you for making me smile at my own insaneness ie, already sticky back plasticked any books in sight, studiously hand sewn on labels for 2 new schools, (still got some to do, worrying about them..!!), succumbed to buying a lovely C**h K*****n bag of which I am envious for my incoming Yr 7 DD, plus new designer sports bags for her and her new Yr 3 brother. Hoping these will be one offs (or three-offs?) that LAST. Please please revive all these lovely threads so I think I'm not the only one. Seriously, enjoy the start of the new term all. No one told me I needed plastic wallets??!!! AARRGGHHH!!
