Kids get their first taste of fandom sometime during their primary school years. Sometimes, it stays at home... and other times, it creeps its way into the classroom, and all of a sudden: BAM! You have a classroom filled with teeny Shopkins toys.
We all know the rules: toys stay at home - they have no place in a schoolyard (everyone knows someone that's lost a Hatchimal... right?!).
But what about the extremely expensive, highly popular, branded "JoJo Siwa" bows... They're fluoro, and patterned, and sparkly, and HUGE... and they surely violate your uniform policy?!
School leaders and P&C's instinctively react and say "that's it - no hair accessories at all!!", but there's another way, and I think you'll come to see that it's the smarter way.
Why not offer the kids a "JoJo" alternative?
What about a more size-appropriate product, IN school colours, that lets them show their "individual style" - all the while leaving their $20+ products at home.
School Ponytails custom manufactures hair accessories for schools throughout Australia and New Zealand. Our products are high quality and matched to your uniform colours, policy, and leadership requests. The P&C or school also turns a profit from the sale of these items.
Fundraising Mums is a great website with entirely practical information for P&Cs and schools. Their article, Why Selling Fundraising Products Is Not A Sell-Out shows you how sensible product fundraisers can be. And Shannon is completely right: our company will supply you with all the things you could possibly need to get this done QUICKLY and EASILY.
So before JoJo makes you say NO to all hair accessories, think about how you can use this latest craze to reinforce your uniform policy. Perhaps the big bow look is not conservative enough, which is why we can fully customise your range to only the items approved by leadership.
