Back To School? No problem!

by 21 January 2020

Back To School? No problem!

February is in sight, which means that the school year is getting closer! Lucky for you, the Bethlehem Town Centre has everything you need to get the kids ready for term one, all in one place! From back packs to stationery, from lunch bags to haircuts, with over 50 retail stores on-site, we're bound to have everything you need for a new school year. Don't forget these school essential, and come down to the centre today. 

The Essentials

The first cab off the rank for back to school is usually the stationery list. All your stationery needs can be sorted at Paper Plus Bethlehem. They’ve got a great range and will have you ready for the first day back in no time. Shop Warwick exercise books from only 5c, and Staedtler coloured pencils from only $3.99. 

Accessorize In Style

From back packs, to lunch boxes, Kmart Bethlehem have everything you need to get your school essentials from A to B in style. They have you covered with personalised pencil cases for 50c, clip-it lunch boxes for $5, drink bottles starting at 75c, and backpacks from $9. 

School Lunches Made Easy

Now you have all the school essentials locked in, it’s time to make sure your little ones don’t go hungry! Countdown Bethlehem have everything you need to pack a nutritious, healthy, and fun lunch for children of all ages. In fact, Countdown have an entire recipe section on their website full of inspiration, but a few of our favourites include Tuna sushi style sandwiches, Apricot, Almond, and Orange Bliss Balls, and Mini Tomato and Cheese Quiches. Delicious! 

After School Fun

Don’t let the 3:30pm “I’m bored” announcement get the better of you – Gateway Games have you covered with everything from board games to puzzles and beyond. For the young ones, MimiQ is only $14.90 and sees children acting out silly facial expressions in a game of memory - what a blast! Or for the slightly order kids, Monopoly Deal at only $18.90 is always a hit, or dive into the wonderful world of Wasgij Puzzles from only $13.50 and keep them entertained for hours. You can even shop online! 

The Finishing Touch

Holidays are all about relaxing and taking it easy, and regular haircuts don’t always fit into that plan. Lucky for you, Just Cuts Bethlehem can take care of those curls that got a bit long with their children’s services. You don’t even need an appointment, which means you can leave the planning and schedules until the school term begins.

Treat Yourself

Now that you have all of that ticked off, we think it’s time you reward yourself and all your hard work, because we know how hard it can get ready for the school year. Why not pop into Immerse Beauty for a massage and manicure? Or Let Rodney Wayne Bethlehem or Vivo Bethlehem treat you to a cut, colour and style so you’re ready for the new year too? And if nothing else, a Coffee and sweet treat from Columbus Coffee or The Coffee Club is the perfect way to take 5 after ticking off your shopping list.
