What to bring on the first day of Primary School?

By: Usha, in Category: Primary

The first day of primary school can be an exciting and overwhelming experience for both parents and students in Singapore. Here are some items that parents can consider bringing for their child on the first day of primary school:

  1. School bag: A sturdy and comfortable school bag that can hold all the necessary items such as textbooks, notebooks, and stationery.

  2. Uniform: Ensure that your child is wearing the correct school uniform and shoes according to the school's dress code.

  3. Water bottle: A reusable water bottle that can be refilled throughout the day to keep your child hydrated.

  4. Snacks: A small snack or two that your child can eat during recess or when they feel hungry.

  5. Stationery: Basic stationery such as pencils, erasers, rulers, and sharpeners to use in class.

  6. Books: Your child's school may provide textbooks or workbooks on the first day, but it is always good to check with the school beforehand and bring them along if required.

  7. Umbrella or raincoat: Singapore's weather can be unpredictable, so it's always good to have an umbrella or raincoat on hand in case of rain.

  8. Student ID: Some schools may issue student identification cards, which your child should bring on the first day.

It's always good to check with your child's school to see if there are any specific items that they need to bring on the first day. Additionally, it's important to label all items with your child's name to prevent any confusion or loss.
