As Christmas comes to a close and the New Year comes rolling in, everyone is scurrying around to organise themselves and their families as its time to go back to school and work.
Carlingford is especially buzzing at this time, with an abundance of fantastic primary and high schools such as Carlingford West primary school, James Ruse High School, Carlingford High School, Tara Anglican School for girls and The Kings School all in very close proximity means many families are working hard to gather all the school equipment in time.
This is rather easy for the residents of Carlingford however, as all shopping needs are covered with the various shopping districts around. Carlingford court is home to Target, Lowes, Coles and Woolworths, which covers stationery needs, uniforms, books and lunch box fillers.
North Rocks Westfields has various shops that can also help in those fields, including Kmart, but also homes some great bookstores that also supply certain textbooks, for your teens in high school.
For more extensive stationery needs and art supplies, Office works in West Ryde is a short 5-minute drive away as well as Parramatta Westfields, which is a 10-minute drive away.
