South Africa has one of the highest pedestrian fatality figures worldwide. Our selected school bags, shoes, raincoats and jackets have been fitted with reflective strips for visibility in poor lighting conditions. So you’ll have one less thing to worry about when your child is out and about. Also remember to always buckle your child in when she’s in a car and teach your child road safety from an early age.

Your child will spend most of their day in their school uniform, so it’s important that their uniform is made from quality fabric and protects their skin. Our school shirts and UV swimsuits are made from fabric that blocks out more than 98% of harmful UV rays. Teach your child to never talk to strangers and rather wait for you or their lift inside the school. And always remember, you’re bigger, be the adult.
