School gear from top to toe at Ackermans

Getting your kids ready for school is as easy as ABC.

Back-to-school shopping can be stressful. Fortunately, you’ll find everything your child needs in one shop. Start ticking off the list:

Summer uniform

  • 2 short-sleeved shirts – one in the wash and one to wear
  • 1 pair of shorts or trousers – find out if the school has a policy whereby boys can wear long trousers throughout the year.
  • 1 skirt for girls

Winter uniform

  • 2 long-sleeved shirts – one in the wash and one to wear
  • 1 pair of trousers
  • 1 jersey
  • 1 rain jacket

If you are buying these in the beginning of the year, keep in mind that kids quickly outgrow their clothes. Therefore, buy winter clothes a size bigger. To save costs, make use of our convenient lay-by system and collect the winter items just in time for the second term.


  • 1 pair of school shoes
  • 2 pairs socks (buy the 2-pack and save)
  • 1 backpack
  • underwear
  • lunchbox
  • water/juice bottle
  • stationery – most schools provide a list. Make sure to take it along when shopping.


  • 1 golfer shirt
  • 1 pair of shorts
  • 1 pair of trainers

Always check if the school requires school-specific branded clothing or sells school badges that must be sewn onto shirts, blazers (if needed) and so on.
