Today my teenaged girl took back some free text books from her school. Though the books are not in very good conditioned, we parents should be grateful that the government is now supplying free text books to all students. But it would be better if they give an option to the students' parents, some parents might prefer to buy new books for their kids instead of using the second hand books supplied by the government.
As for my girl, she does not mind, she is in fact used to using second hands books handed down by her siblings. What she wanted to request are mostly stationeries and school supplies, as listed in ShopWiki.co.uk. For all students alike, this website will be most helpful especially when it comes to school supplies. Everything they need to have are all there. You can just order online or browse through the wide selection of choices they have there.
School has just reopened and my girl is still looking for a new school bag. She wanted something different this time and if I tell her about this Back-To-School link, she will be most happy to choose something from there.
