* Winter school uniforms

Many schools are turning to their winter uniforms this week, last week and next week. I´ve already seen a huge line at our school for parents scrambling to get sweaters, trousers and blazers. If you want to save a bit of money on school uniforms you may want to try and get some new and nearly new uniforms from one of our readers.

I would also like to remind you that we have a School Uniform exchange forum on Marbella Family Fun where you can get in touch with parents who are trying to get rid of or sell their old uniforms. Take a look at what´s available and if you can´t find what you´re looking for, then post it and let others know what you need. OR, if you would like to free up some closet space, post this in the forum and someone will be happy to take it off your hands. Click here to read more...
