When school started up and everyone was doing posts about how many school supplies they had to pony up the bucks for (see Song for Whoever and her HUGE list), I was smug. Smug in thinking that since my kiddo goes to a private school, I really didn’t have much to buy. A pencil case, pencils, colored pencils, box of tissues and indoor shoes. We managed to snag the required gym shirt for 5€ from another parent.
- Gym uniform shorts
- Waterproof jacket and trousers for PE rain days (yes, they go outside even in the rain, if they didn’t they’d never go outside)
- Trainers to be worn exclusive inside (he already has trainers for gym to be worn exclusively outdoors – these are different from the shoes he wears to school daily and separate from the school indoor shoes he wears when in class. Confused yet? I’m right there with ya’.)
- Towel in case they are wet after being outside
So a hundred Euros later… we have the complete (for the next six months till he grows anyway) requirements for school. Next time, I’ll just keep my mouth shut.
