Tuckshop

The tuckshop operated by the P&C. Our tuckshop was the winner of the 2012 QAST Healthiest Menu for a primary schools.

Opening days are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during term (before school, first and second breaks).

MENU

Our menu is designed to provide healthier food choices for students. Many of the items on our menu are made “in house” from fresh ingredients to provide the best flavour and nutritional value. All food, snacks and drinks bags are colour coded into 2 categories:

  • Green – Eat often
  • Amber – Eat occasionally

Special dietary requirements

We can cater for children with special dietary needs if advised in advance.

All meals are nut free and most meals are egg free. While we attempt to avoid any allergy foods in our cooking, traces may be found in foods during the manufacturing process.

How to order

To reduce food waste, you must order all meals.  Only a few items are for sale over the counter.  You can order online or drop your order in person before school.

Online

Visit the School24 website. You will need to register using our school ID (25385963). The full menu is available online and you can order and pay with your credit card. You can even place a regular weekly order and automatically top up your account with your credit card.

In person

1) Use a separate brown paper bag for 1st and 2nd break and hot and cold food items (excluding drinks).

2) On a brown paper bag clearly write the following:

    • First or second break
    • Child’s name
    • Class
    • Menu items and costs
  • For hot food, please indicate your choice of:- V = Vegetarian, DF = Dairy Free, GF = Gluten Free or EF = Egg Free.

3) Place money in brown paper bag (close to exact payment  is always appreciated). Please no foreign currency coins.

4) Place orders in the baskets marked 1st or 2nd break at the tuckshop before school.

Please select from our menu, you may take items off but please do not add items – it makes it very difficult for our kitchen volunteers.

Volunteers are needed!

The Tuckshop cannot run without volunteers, and we require help especially on Fridays.  If you have free time on a Wednesday Thursday or Friday, please contact the Tuckshop:

All volunteers are welcome to a complementary lunch and a coffee or tea.  First break is at 11am and second break is at 1:15pm.  First break is the busiest on Friday.  Second break is quieter on a Wednesday and that is when we do cooking.  If anyone is interested in helping out with the cooking, we would love to hear from you.  Second break is still busy on a Friday, so if you are busy in the morning but can come in later in the day, we would be very happy to have your help.

We have a lovely group of ladies who volunteer in the Tuckshop, so come in and join us. 

Homebake

If you’d like to help but are unable to come in during the week, you could bake us something at home! Homebake can be cupcakes, slices, biscuits – anything you’d like to make! We will add some recipes here shortly, to give you some ideas.

Homebake has changed slightly to accommodate the Healthy Choices program, so please don’t use sprinkles and try to choose low sugar items. Dark choc chips are acceptable. Homebake is rated as AMBER.

Healthy Choices

The Qld Government’s Smart choices as been implemented from Term 1, 2018, which meant the removal of pies, sausage rolls, chips, jelly sticks, Beef and Chicken Lasagna, Macaroni cheese and Fried Rice.

Birthdays

Need some birthday treats for the classroom? Tuckshop is here to help!

COVID restrictions with bringing food into school are still in place, so if you would like the Tuckshop to provide something for your child’s class, all we need is one week’s notice.

– Ice blocks
– individual chips bags
– set of Cookies – Double choc chip or choc chip (approx 10cm wide)
– un-iced vanilla slab cake for $15. No icing, but sugar & cinnamon or sprinkles on top, and cut for the correct class numbers

Available on non tuckshop days.

It is important to remember to let us know a week ahead – we will need to order in extra supplies and plan ahead. Email: tuckshop.mrss@gmail.com
