Here are all the important facts about the My School Memories album.
What is My School Memories about?
My School Memories is an organisational album that over the years, will become a keepsake. With our little ones starting school we couldn’t find anything that kept all of their school memories together, whether it be school photos, report cards or certificates. So we created our own and even added prompts on each of the inserts to ask your child (or they can fill it in!) to capture their journey along the way.
How many inserts does a My School Memories album include?
Every album includes x 13 handy inserts - one of each school year. They are made out of durable 300gsm card and produced in a way that will safely keep your treasures brought home safe. Every insert has a set of prompts to fill in about the child’s school year and space to stick some photos that will make you smile in the years to come.
Don’t different states in Australia have different names for the first year of school?
They do! But we were determined not to be biased and didn’t want any state missing out. The first insert for the first year of school is called ‘When it all began’ so that it is applicable to ALL states and territories in Australia. This insert can also be used for the years before officially starting school.
I’d like to organise my child’s keepsakes from childcare and the year prior. Are there inserts that can purchased?
Absolutely! With our youngest children in care and at pre-school we knew it would be important to keep everything in the one place. This is why you can purchase additional insert/s to showcase and organise the beginning of the child’s educational journey. This specific insert is the same as the one for the first year of school and already included in the album. It can be purchased here.
Are all the inserts the same?
Yes and no. Yes in the sense that they are all made from the same durable card and no because the prompts to ask your child differ depending on the education level (whether its early childhood, primary and secondary) - but they are similar so you can reflect on how a child’s answer differs year on year.
My child has moved schools - can I purchase an extra insert?
You sure can! We know that sometimes life can happen, so we’ve got additional inserts ready to go. Simply select the applicable insert from the options and we’ll post it to you at no cost.

Where is the album made?

What are the dimensions of the album?

It depends but yes! Please send us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with the proposed mailing address and we’ll suss our the options and pricing for international shipping.
The inserts have allocated areas for pictures - what are the photo sizes?
Each insert has 2 x allocated areas for a picture. We thought the one on the front would be best suited for an individual school photo. The one on the back is to capture a favourite memory - it could be the last day of school, graduation, camp, excursion or an awards evening. We know there are a lot, which is why our oversized inserts can safely store all the others!
The exact sizes are:
- 6 x 4 (15x 10 cm) which is a standard portrait size photograph
- 4 x 4 (10 x 10 cm) is another common photo size that can be easily off at any Kmart, Officeworks or Snapfish within Australia.
In total across all school years, the album accommodates 12 6x4 photos & 12 4x4 photos.
How big is the insert? Can I place an A4 size award in there?
Absolutely! They are oversized so anything that is A4 can comfortably slide in and out without damaging the keepsake.
What is the best way to stick the photo onto the insert?
We’ve tried and tested and suggest using either double sided tape or glue / sticky dots that can be readily found at Officeworks.
