5 Ways Reusable Plastic Crates Can Be Used In Schools

It’s June which means that the summer holidays are just around the corner. But before teachers and other school staff can wind-down for the holidays, there is still a lot of work to be done around the classroom including the annual clear-down to get everything ready for the new school year.

Organising the classroom can be a nightmare and storage is always a problem but thanks to EasyCrate you can have everything neatly put away in no time.

Our reusable plastic crates featuring integrated lids offer durable and practical storage for the classroom - a must for the summer clear down. Here are five ways that our reusable plastic crates can be used in school:

1.       Storing of school records and reports – there is a lot of paperwork generated in schools from documents detailing student details, annual report cards, attendance and many other official documents. These can all be stored securely in our reusable plastic crates for as long as necessary.

2.       Storing of art supplies and materials – arts, crafts and technology are an important part of the curriculum but require a lot of resources. Our plastic crates come in a variety of generous sizes which makes them ideal for storing anything from paints to paper and other stationary and art supplies. Thanks to the durable design of the crates, they can easily be stacked too, making storage space more efficient.

3.       Storage for maths supplies – when teaching little ones maths, a variety of supplies and materials will be used from plastic money through to counting games. These are easy to store in plastic crates and with efficient labelling, you’ll be able to just pull out the crate you need next time to deliver a lesson in the new school year.

4.       Storage for display materials – most schools re-use and re-purchase what they can from one year to another to make the best use of their budget. Themes taught one year are likely to be repeated for the next group of pupils so display materials can be stored away in reusable plastic crates until next needed. Hiring plastic crates for this purpose is cost-effective too.

5.       Storage of PE equipment – with the wide range of sports and activities taught in schools, comes a wide range of PE resources from hockey sticks to beanbags, hula hoops to footballs. Everything can be storage in plastic crates which come in a range of sizes to meet your needs.
