Back to School with George #ohtheplacesyoullgo

We were sent a copy of the Dr. Seuss book “oh, the places you’ll go!” because once kitted out in their George school uniforms children are set for adventures wherever they decide to go.

When schools out the boys don’t tend to change from uniforms unless there is a birthday party to attend - the uniform is so hardwearing and practical perfect for surviving the playground and any after school clubs!  The shoes stay fresher with the Micro-Fresh® technology for long after school hikes (hunting for Pokemon) or riding bikes.  They make plans at school and come out excited, heading to the park no longer do I find myself invited.  They are growing in independence, they want to just go, I can’t swaddle them forever this much I know.


Wide-eyed and enthusiastic to start a new school term, they want their uniform to look the part – their hair carefully styled, it matters more now.  Apparently at nine you can’t just walk out the door!  Gel is applied, a spray of dad’s lynx if allowed.

As they headed off to school it was another step in their future – sometimes they will have good days and others not so much.  But hopefully they will learn to keep positive and find the right path.  What will be guaranteed is they will be comfortable and warm wearing their George school uniform.  As much as we like to keep them little they start to become individuals and want their own space!  But at least you can ensure they leave home in the perfect fit, colours bold and bright and whites that haven’t faded to grey – I might not be allowed to hold their hand to the school gate but I can make sure their uniform is everything it needs to be.

So remember children “today is your day” – head off on an adventure, have a spring in your step, laugh and smile, make friends, explore, discover the world and more than anything know George and your parents have your back!

  1. I tell my son each morning before he goes in to have a good day. Judging by the amount of paint on him on Friday I think he had a very good day!

  2. I can't believe school has started already! I also love school uniforms 0 it makes life so much easier (especially if they are hard wearing like the ASDA ones!)

  5. Mine are the same and stay in their uniform the whole day and just put a clean set on the next day. One of my daughters won't where anything but a particular Asda skirt style right now and finding it in her size has been interesting! Mich x
