Tuck Shop

Our school also has a Tuck Shop with a range of healthy eating options. We encourage our students to eat healthy food and we teach them the benefits of a healthy diet, which is a lifelong skill. Each day we encourage the students to have a ‘brain food’ break.

The Tuck Shop is open on Fridays and we are always happy to welcome new helpers. Please contact the school if you are interested.
