ShowMe Paarl & Wellington Newsletter  #17.01.1
Welcome to the ShowMe Paarl and Wellington Newsletter
The new year has arrived and most of us are back at work and the kids, young and old, are in school.
Going back to school is a stressful time for children and parents alike. New teachers, fresh routines and making friends are just a few of the stressors that occur this time of the year. We have put together guides for both children and parents to make going back to school less stressful. Read our articles below for some great tips. 
How can you improve your children's performance at school? Two very important aspects are vision and hearing. Early detection of problems means that issues can be worked on and improved timeously. Read our two articles below to understand why these tests are so important, and what signs may indicate a problem exists
There are some great events taking place in Paarl in the coming days. See highlights below or for more events taking place in the Winelands check out our Events and Entertainment page.

Ways to Optimise your Child’s Performance
Vision screening – important for early detection of problems
The importance of eye testing for children is often understated when parents and guardians take the vision abilities of kids for granted.
It is important for children to have regular eye tests in order to enure early detection of problems. 
Zinn & Loock Optometrists are able to provide comprehensive visual examinations and assist with solutions to your child's vision problems.
The importance of regular hearing tests for children
For any child, hearing and speech are essential tools for learning, playing as well as developing social and cognitive skills. The first few years of their life are crucial for developing all these fundamental skills.
Routine hearing tests are essential to avoid a hearing problem going undiagnosed for many months or even years. Paarl Hearing Centre provides hearing tests and solutions to children in a warm and friendly environment.
