Back to school 2024: Find school supplies in Camberwell Junction

Preparing for back-to-school can be a stressful rush, as you drive from store to store, ticking all the things you need off the list, then madly rushing out to get everything you forgot. But not this year!

Here’s Camberwell Junction’s list of all your back-to-school requirements and where you can find them – and the even better news is that you’ll find everything you need in the one shopping precinct.

School stationery and electronics

School stationery lists are long and specific and can seem overwhelming – why not hand that list to the folks at Officeworks and let them do the legwork? They have all the exercise books, calculators, pens, rulers and everything else on your back-to-school list.

While they’re preparing your order, pop over to Smiggle and give your kids a delightful back-to-school surprise with a funky pencil case or an amazing set of pens.

Kmart also has a massive range of stationery and is a great place to pick up iPads and other electronic items. For laptops and other bigger electronic devices, JB Hi-Fi is the place to go.

Clothing and school bags

Almost as long as the stationery list is the list of clothes kids need for school – who knew they would grow so much over summer?

Stock up on t-shirts, shorts, skirts, socks and sporting gear at Kmart and Bonds Outlet, but keep an eye out for the eagerly anticipated specials that hit Aldi’s centre aisles this time of year.

School shoes

School shoes are the one item of school uniforms that are worth paying special attention to. Properly fitted, good quality shoes – including sports shoes – are essential for the healthy development of your child’s body and can really impact their participation in activities as well as their ability to concentrate in class.

Whether your child is into Mary Janes and t-bars or prefers the classic lace up, Shoes & Sox has you covered, and Athlete’s Foot has a shoe for every sporting activity. For those with specific needs, Active Feet has podiatry-approved footwear.

If last year’s shoes are still in good shape but need a little love, get them repaired, restored or re-heeled at Arcade Shoe Repairs or Arthur’s Shoe Repairs.

All your back-to-school needs

Camberwell Junction is the place to go for all those bits and bobs that kids need for going back to school – padlocks and school bag tags, for example – and you can find these all at our local newsagencies as well as Coles and Woolworths supermarkets, which both have large stationery aisles.

For many families, back-to-school means school photos – make sure your kids are camera ready, or just ready to put their best foot forward, by booking in a cut at one of Camberwell Junction’s barbers or hairdressers.

Make this school year happy and productive by sending your kids back to school with everything they need, all from Camberwell Junction.
