Tuckshop

The P&C Association operates a school tuckshop that aims to provide our students with nutritious, delicious, affordable food.
 
The tuckshop is open for first break on Fridays for a $5 Meal Deal (the weekly special is advertised in the newsletter) and over-the-counter items will also be available (see menu here).


Orders can be placed via the online ordering system up to 30 days in advance, the cutoff time is 10am on Thursday.  It is free to parents, your children won’t need to take money to school anymore, and it will make it much easier for us to count the orders!  

If ordering via the paper form, please:
 
  • write all the info directly on the paper bag) - don’t forget your child’s name and class!
  • enclose correct change
  • fold top of bag down a couple of times (please don’t staple or sticky tape bag closed, it makes it very difficult for us to open!)
  • give the paper bag to the class teacher on Thursday morning
 
Children will need to collect refrigerated or frozen items from the tuckshop. 
 
Please note: If your child has ordered Tuckshop but is absent on the day, please let us know before Friday 10am so we can arrange a credit.

uckshop Volunteering

Volunteers are what make Tuckshop a success and we would love for you to help!  You don't need to be able to volunteer every week, once a fortnight, one a month or even just randomly is great!

You don't have to know anyone or even be able to cook, you'll soon meet lots of new people and we have loads of jobs that don't require cooking skills.  If you have 1-3 hours to give, these are the types of jobs we need help with on Fridays:

  • Cutting up veletables/salad for meals
  • Preparing our famous sausage rolls
  • Rolling sushi - we'll teach you, it's easy!
  • Cooking meat on the BBQ
  • Cutting up homebake items
  • Washing dishes
  • Packaging meals for delivery
  • Serving over the counter - children LOVE to see their parents helping at school!

Can't come on Friday? There are still ways to help.  On Thursday, we sort the orders and do as much preparating for the meal deal as we can.  Come and learn how to make our delicious nacho sauce or, if you can't make it to school, become a home baker!  We have a crew of parents who regularly bake cakes/muffins/biscuits and drop them off to the Tuckshop Friday morning.  These are then added to the meal deal or sold over the counter.  We have standard recipies to follow or you can contribute your own recipe.  We can also provide you with the guidelines for the types of things that are suitable for Tuckshop homebake.

All tuckshop food is prepared by volunteers; if you are interested in helping out, we would love for you to join us! This is a great way of getting to know members of the school community. If you are able to help in any way (there are lots of opportunities!), please email Katherine at jpsstuckshop@gmail.com
