IF YOU’VE already gone back to work and are trying to juggle the return of your to children to school, Lisa Hawkins is only a phone call away. As the woman behind the personal and corporate concierge service Life Balance Essentials, Mrs Hawkins does the thinking, organising and doing for people who
have lots to do but not enough time.
The concierge service is the only one of its kind in the North and with school only two weeks away she has launched a Back to School package for busy parents who either don’t have the time or
want to spend their free time doing other things.
‘‘Parents do start to stress out in those last few weeks before their kids go back to school, and if they
work, many places only open during business hours so they can’t get to them, like uniform shops, so
this service can save them the stress of trying to do it all themselves,’’ Mrs Hawkins said.
‘‘With this, people get their time back.’’ The school package will see your child’s books, stationery and uniforms picked up, books covered, enrolment and before and after school care forms filled
in, as well as three hours of house cleaning. Any additional costs are added to the flat fee of $250.
