The Back-To-School Special: The New Academic Year

Send tots back to class with the kit they’ll need and a smile on their face

Back to school in Dubai 2017

As the long summer break ends, the week leading up to the first day of the term can be a whirlwind of preparation. No matter how many lists are penned, there always appears to be a seemingly never-ending array of errands, from buying new school supplies to stocking the fridge with lunchbox snacks and updating uniforms for your ever-growing tot.

Before battling out your to-dos, take a look at our insider guide to getting everything your youngster will need for school from the Dubai shopping malls.

The Perfect Pencil Case

We’re yet to come across a kid who doesn’t love picking out a brand new pencil case along with lots of colourful new pens and stationary goodies for the new school year. The shopping malls in Dubai are filled with plenty of shops filled with fun learning tools to ensure they’re thoroughly prepped for class. Typo is one of our top picks and stashed with a fun hoard of quirky stationary treats.

Sole Mates

Nothing signals the start of a new academic year like a brand new pair of smart shoes. Clarks is our go-to for quality leather school shoes for both boys and girls and offers a free measuring service to ensure the perfect fit.

Back At It

The best school bags are usually backpacks or drawstring rucksacks to offer neck and shoulder support as well as enough room for all your child’s school books and class necessities. Marks & Spencer’s offers a variety of different styles, and most recently, the best-selling Star Wars design – little fans of the films will go nuts for it!

A Lesson in Lunch Boxes

For us parents, the secret to filling a daily lunchbox successfully is to pack in healthy and nutrition-packed bites (which they’ll actually enjoy eating) to keep kids fuller for longer.

Carrefour Dubai in Mall of the Emirates, one of the best Supermarkets in Dubai, houses a special organic section, offering a wide selection of low-carb, sugar-free and gluten-free snacks along with every day groceries to all fill your little one’s needs.
