Our tuckshop operates 5 days per week and provides nutritious meals for students and staff. Members of the school community are welcome to volunteer their time at the tuckshop or to provide daily 'home bake'. Occasional Meal Deal days are also offered for special events.
The preferred method for ordering is online, via flexischools. Online ordering is more convenient providing a 24/7 payment and ordering system that can be accessed from home, work or a mobile device. Registration is free and only takes a few minutes.
A manual class ordering system also operates for students in all year levels. Each class has a tuckshop box and children place their order into the box each morning. Please use a paper bag to place your order.
Suggested label would contain:
You may also like to include an extra bag if you wish to separate the hot and cold foods. Or a separate bag for cold drinks (each bag needs to be labelled).
If you don’t have a bag just write the order on an envelope and enclose 10 cents for each bag needed.
Correct money is appreciated, wrapped in paper or tissue and placed in the bag. If change is required we will return it with the order.
The State Government's Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools, Smart Choices ensures healthy food and drink choices to students. The strategy applies to any area where food and drink is supplied including the tuckshop, fundraising ventures, vending machines, excursions, camps, classroom rewards, sport days, and curriculum activities.
The strategy is based on the Australian Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents and the Australian Guide for Healthy Eating encouraging fruits and vegetables and severely limiting such items as lollies, fried foods, cakes and soft drinks. The strategy advocates for a balanced approach to health, which encompasses nutritious eating, combined with physical exercise thus promoting an overall healthy lifestyle.
Volunteer support for all aspects of tuckshop operations is always appreciated.
Parents interested in providing assistance in the tuckshop or by providing 'home bake' are asked to contact the tuckshop convenor.
