School’s out for Summer!!! – Teacher Gift Ideas from local businesses


End of term and the end of the school year is fast approaching – June for those in Northern Ireland, end of June/early July for Scotland, the third week in July for England and Wales.  For many that means buying a gift for your child’s teacher and perhaps classroom assistant whether they agree with it or not.  Trying to come up with a gift from your child can be tricky and how much do you spend?  I’ve found a few local businesses who are all selling teacher gifts so for something different and to help our local economy have a little look at these . . .
