Backpacks – caring for your back

backpack-interiorThe Friends’ School bags are designed and manufactured with back care in mind.

To cater to the wide needs of students in Kindergarten to Year 12, our backpacks are available in a number of sizes and in a style appropriate to the year level.

Students in Kindergarten to Year 4 use the Omnipak or Unopak.  These backpacks are durable with a padded back panel, adjustable straps (including a waist strap) and a mesh side drink bottle pocket.

Students in Year 5 to 12 have the Chiropak II which is available in three sizes.  The Chiropak II is endorsed by the Chiropractors Association of Australia and has many features which include a removable moulded spinal board to allow for custom fit.

For the best possible fit, we recommend that students accompany their families when shopping for a backpack so that Shop staff can assist you in selecting the most appropriate bag for the students age and size.
