Tuckshop

The tuckshop is the responsibility of the Isabella State School P&C and aims to provide a quality service to the school community through offering a varied selection of healthy food and drinks at an affordable price.

The tuckshop operates five days a week. It is managed by our tuckshop convenor, Dee Dyer, with the assistance of volunteers.

Our tuckshop menu (PDF, 125 KB) complies with the Queensland government’s 'smart choices – healthy food and drink strategy for Queensland schools'. As part of this strategy, all items on the menu are coded with a 'traffic light' system, i.e. Green – good; amber - select carefully; Red - occasional. For further information please visit smart choices – healthy food and drink strategy for Queensland.

Paper bag ordering

Ordering can be completed via a traditional paper bag.

Clearly write your child’s name and class, the items required and price of each, total cost of the order and whether it is required for first or second lunch on a paper bag.

Place the correct amount of money (if possible) in the bag and fold the top over. Do not use sticky tape or staples.

Your child then places the paper bag with their order and money into the tuckshop box in their classroom.

If ordering items for both first and second lunch, please note that separate bags are required for each.

Foreign currency is not accepted by the tuckshop.

Volunteering

Volunteers are a vital part of the tuckshop service. Regular volunteer support helps the tuckshop run smoothly and keeps prices low. Volunteering in the tuckshop is a great way to get involved with your child’s school and meet new friends. You will gain food handling experience, and of course your child will love to see you working at 'their' school.

Volunteer hours and duties are flexible. You may wish to help out one day a week, or you may only be able to help for a few hours each fortnight. Perhaps you can only stay up until first lunch, or it might suit you better to pop in for a short time in the morning.  Any help you are able to give would be appreciated.

If you are interested in getting involved and helping out, please drop in and see Dee our friendly tuckshop convener, or call her during tuckshop hours on (07) 4040 8713.
