In a few days' time, we will move on to the New Year. The New Year will be busy with the enrolment of new students at primary and secondary schools nationwide.
A large number of parents will certainly be busy bringing along their children to shop for various school necessities. RTB's crew in Belait District this afternoon saw a number of parents making preparations for next year's school season. All school stationery can be found at bookstores, the only thing left to do is to choose the items according to need and affordability. As usual, every end of year, business premises in the country including bookstores offer discounted prices to ease the burden of parents.
Not all school necessities must be new if the ones used before are still in good condition and can be re-used to avoid wastage. This was also agreed upon by one of the customers at a bookstore in Belait District.
