The tuckshop at Victoria Park is known as 'Sid's Snack Shack'. Sid is a school mascot (the pink pig) that also makes an appearance on our four School Rules.
The tuckshop currently operates both breaks Monday to Friday and food is available to order via
flexischools online or by using the Flexischools App which can be downloaded on your mobile device from the Play store (android devices) or the App Store (Apple devices).
Orders close at 9am daily. All orders must be ordered online or using the App as the Tuckshop does not accept cash and food is not sold over the counter. Food is prepared daily by our wonderful tuckshop convenors once the order is confirmed.
At each break the food and drinks are placed in the class boxes. For Prep to Grade 3, the boxes are taken to the eating areas and handed out by the Teacher on duty. For Grade 4 to Grade 6 the orders are collected from the tuckshop by the students themselves. Please let your child know when you have ordered tuckshop for them.
Our menu must follow strict guidelines set by Education Queensland's "Smart Choices" strategy and our menu has the approval of the Queensland Association of Tuckshops (QAST). Our convenors include a variety of healthy, nutritious and tasty choices on the menu. The tuckshop uses fresh produce from the garden when in season. To find out more, look at the SMART CHOICES Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategies for Queensland Schools.
The Convenors are always looking for new volunteers as circumstances change with parents' availability all the time. You don't need to be an expert, all help is appreciated.
