Equipment for School

One of our goals at Sheldon is to encourage students to be independent, responsible and organised. We do equipment checks each morning to make sure that students are prepared for the day. We know that for some students organisation can be a struggle so we ask that parents and carers support us by making sure that pencil cases and backpacks are packed each day with the correct items. Please label large items (especially the calculator) so that it can be returned to your child if lost.
