The Tuckshop operated by the P&C.
Opening days are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during term (first and second breaks).
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. Orders are now exclusively made online. Students can still purchase iceblocks, slushies and popcorn over the counter at both breaks.
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.
Late Tuckshop Orders
The current cutoff for tuckshop orders is 8.50am. In order to get everything prepared, cooked, assembled, bagged and into class boxes by 11am, we can’t receive orders after this time. Fridays in particular are very busy, and the tuckshop regularly produces 250 orders for first break.
Starting Wed 10 March 2021, if you do need to order after 8.50am, there will only be a late order pack available to purchase. For $10 your child will receive a sandwich, a piece of fruit and a homebake.
We understand emergencies happen, and ordering can be forgotten in the morning rush, however with limited resources this is what the tuckshop is able to provide.
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.
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.
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.
