For some parents, it may feel like yesterday we were celebrating Christmas holidays, for others, it’s been a long break and are now ready for the kids to go back to school. This means a mad rush for school uniforms, classroom supplies and preparing school lunches. We know this can be an overwhelming time for even the most organised of parents, so here at Port Canal Shopping Centre, we’ve put together a quick back to school shopping guide to make your last minute school shopping easy.
