10 little extras for school

Wall calendar

All kids have their own school agenda, but it can only be used if your child remembers to fill it in and bring it home! Don’t take any chance and buy a wall calendar for your child’s study station. That way, homework, lessons, tests, assignments, PD days and school trips will have no secrets for you! The squares are big enough to write important dates for more than one child, but because there are more than one style available (and because they’re all nice!), buy more than one if you have enough room on your wall.
