Durable school bags:
We have a great selection of durable school bags to get you through the full school year and smaller bags for summer camps and summer school courses.
The bane of every school kid is dragging his or her books, notepads and lunchbox from class to class. Studies have shown that school bags can put a strain on children’s backs, with school goers regularly carrying 30%-40% of their own body weight. This excessive weight can lead to bad posture and in extreme cases, scoliosis. While we can’t do anything about the amount of weight children are required to carry from class to class, we can give a few tips on how to better manage it.
See what you can do to reduce the load; Use smaller notepads, check which books are required for each day and leave the ones your little one doesn’t need at home. Ask if the school provides lockers or storage for books and materials. Get your kids to clean out their bags on a regular basis; The amount of junk that builds up is amazing.
Make sure your kids have a bag capable of handling the weight as there’s nothing worse than a cheap school bag ripping at the corners. In winters, expensive books and supplies can be destroyed by water seeping into torn and badly made school bags.
Buy a bag with a padded back and adjustable straps to keep it positioned in the centre of the back so that the load is distributed evenly. Get a bag with two straps, not one, to ensure the weight is distributed evenly. Make sure the bag is comfortable and snug to the back; You don’t want the bag swaying and hanging from the shoulders!
Pack the bag correctly; Always put larger, heavier items closer to the back as this helps reduce the movement of items in the bag. Use the pockets; Put smaller items in the correct compartments to keep them from moving too much.
Consider a wheelie bag; Why lift when you can roll your books to class?
