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).
Tastes of the World! Specials
Each week we will feature two specials from a different country of the world. These meals will be available for first break of that week only and can be ordered over the counter or on Flexischools. Keep your eyes peeled for posters around the school with the featured menu items as well as some fun and interesting facts about that particular country. Posters will go up each Monday, so the students will know what’s on offer by the time the tuckshop is open on Wednesday.
- Check out where we’ve been so far this term!
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.
Visit the Flexischools website. You will need to register then search for our school. 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.
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
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 Monday, Wednesday 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 both Wednesday and 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. Of course, Dads, Grandmas and Granddads are always welcome too!
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.
