I'd actually advise to just order online... usually Popular or Pacific Bookstore (the usual bookstores given the MOE school contracts) even have discounts with credit cards and also offer delivery right to the doorstep. It's the same books anyway plus you can do that in the comfort of your home rather than at the crowded classroom/ canteen when your time is better spent talking to the teachers or exploring the school during orientation.zac's mum wrote:Btw the best tip I’ve heard from experienced parents - if u do plan to buy the books in school and cart them home yourself - bring a roller suitcase to help u transport all those books home. They are extremely heavy, no kidding!
And yes, P1 is pretty chill - so the teachers will guide the new students. No need to worry about not having books and also having to carry all the heavy bags there on Day 1.
