The Education Ministry has urged parents to shop wisely as they approach the beginning of another school year.

Permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal said it was that time of the year when people get in the mood of back to school shopping and later regret not buying the best quality items for their children.

"I urge students and parents to shop very wisely when they look for stationery, uniforms, shoes and bags," Dr Lal said.

"Picking the best quality items will satisfy your children's school needs.

"These quality items will last for one whole year and you will not have to buy a certain item twice in one year."

Mr Lal said choosing the best, quality items saved money for parents and would boost their children's morale as they look forward to another school year.

He added that by now students should have a fair idea of the subjects they will be enrolled in.

"This will get them into the study mood so that come January 21 they are all ready to start," he added.

Schools around the country open on January 20 and students will start on January 21.
