Tuckshop

At The Gap State School we support healthy eating; as such we provide reasonably priced, high quality, nutritious food and drinks.

 
The tuckshop is an initiative of The Gap State School’s Parent’s and Citizen’s Association and adopts the mandatory Smart Choices – Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools.
 
The tuckshop is run by two convenors, Mrs Rebecca Oliver and Mrs Julie Palmer and is staffed by parent/carer volunteers.
 

Due to changes in the times of first and second break, we will be changing the days and times we are open.  We will now be open from MONDAY to THURSDAY (closed Friday)  We will be offering WINDOW SERVICE ONLY AT FIRST BREAK and pre-ordered items and window service at second break. Tuckshop​ will be open for orders and window service from Monday 6th February (Week 3).

Flexischools will be up and running again for Week 3.  Please remember to update your child's class.  A new menu will be coming home soon with a few changes.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to providing your children with yummy food again this year. 

Regards

Julie Palmer, Rebecca Oliver

​How can you help?
 
There are two main ways in which parents/carers are able to help the tuckshop.
 
Volunteering in the tuckshop
 
This involves a  session for only a few hours, beginning at approximately 10.15am through until 1:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 
 
You will be helping with checking off children’s orders, preparing food, serving children and cleaning-up. Full training is provided so come along and join in the fun.
 
While we do need parent/carer volunteers who are willing to commit to a regular rostered day once a week or once a month, we still welcome volunteers who are available to give any amount of time.
 
Volunteering at the tuckshop is a fabulous way to meet other parents/carers while actively contributing to our school.
 
Students love to see someone they love behind the counter at tuckshop!
 
Home-baking Team
 
If you are unable to volunteer in the tuckshop you could volunteer to become a member of our wonderful home-baking team.
 
We have a home-baking system whereby volunteers bake and donate up to 2 dozen healthy, freshly baked items that will be sold at the tuckshop in both bag orders and over the counter.
 
There is a roster system for both volunteering in the tuckshop and for home-baking and our convenors would love to hear from you to add you to the roster. Flexible shifts are available at times that suit you.
 
If you are interested in volunteering either in the tuckshop or as a home-baker please complete the volunteer form and drop it into the tuckshop or the school office.

How to place an order  (if not using Flexischools)

 
Filling out your child’s tuckshop bag/s correctly is simple but very important as this will ensure that your child receives the food you have ordered. 
 
The bag/s need to include the following information:
 
  • Child’s full name
  • Child’s class
  • Food choices with the cost of each individual item written next to it
  • Total money enclosed
 
Please fold over the top of the bag securely to ensure that the money does not fall out.
 
It is important that you check the tuckshop menu you have at home to ensure that you have the most up-to-date menu.
