New School

Posted on July 19, 2017 By Blazer Bear

New School

It is the end of term, or nearly, and summer is here! But for some this also means moving to pastures new. Whether leaving to start secondary school, off to university or moving to a new area it can be a time of full of emotion. At first there is excitement as it is the holidays! Weeks ahead of no homework, being told to do your top button up or perhaps school dinners. For mums and dads no more homework nagging, the school run or frantically trying to organise sports kit on a Monday with no items lost…a challenge!

However it is also a time to look back and reflect. Friendships, fun and achievements and for parents the fact that their children are growing and developing and childhood is moving on. Having a personal keepsake is a wonderful way of remembering those special school days. It is a great way to keep those treasured memories alive by recycling some of the uniform you have washed and mended over the years!

Each keepsake tells a story. You can choose which items of uniform you want to use. It may be the blazer, a summer dress or a team shirt. The socks or tie may be special or perhaps the smallest thing like a cuff from a favourite jumper. The name tag, badges and memorabilia which can be added to a Blazer Bear keepsake make it a truly personal momento. Our embroidery service is also personalised so you can decide what you add.

It can be quite nerve wracking taking that next step and sometimes coming home to something familiar can be a little comforting. Wishing all those who are off to new adventures lots of fun, success and happiness ahead.

Sharing is caring!

How did it start?

tplFriends since their first children were born, Pru and Kathy are two mums whose children are now at secondary school. As a special keepsake Pru made each of her children a teddy bear out of their old school Blazers. Kathy loved the concept so they joined forces and Blazer Bear. was born.  Find out more
