The school tuckshop
is operated by the P&C Association with the assistance of parent
volunteers. All the profits generated by this enterprise are directed back to
the school via the P and C to improve educational outcomes for our
students. Our canteen offers a
menu that has a variety of choice and healthy options and complies with Smart
Choices – Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools. Our
school has an important role in promoting healthy eating and physical activity
to students and providing an environment that supports a healthy lifestyle.
A healthy diet can improve behaviours critical to
educational success and performance at school. Effective school-based nutrition
and health interventions can also help improve academic performance. Our
tuckshop is an important part of the school environment and models healthy food
and drink choices that are tasty, interesting and affordable, and provide the
means to put into practice nutrition messages taught in the classroom.Parents nd Carers can opt to take part in the Flexischools cashless system which uses the student card as a means for students to purchase food. It allows parents to monitor student spending at the tuckshop as well as the benefit of avoiding lost or forgotten cash. Please visit Flexischools to register an account, top up student cards and set spending limits.
