Kids, are you missing school

We bet the majority of kids out there will answer with a firm 'No' when asked that question.

A teacher videoed an interaction with one of her high school students, and we think we might have found a student with a sense of humour, who is also innovative

It might be humorous to watch this video, but stationery is essential, and we often undervalue it. 

"As a student, having the right tools can make a difference in your academic journey. While textbooks and digital resources often take the spotlight, don't overlook the importance of good old-fashioned stationery." (Stationery Pal)

Stationery can help students feel organised and productive. It can also help students express themselves in creative ways. Writing by hand helps engage the brain and reinforces the process of actively retaining information. Stationery also motivates you to write better and that leads to a better understanding.
