Tartan TuckshopThe Tartan Tuckerbox (tuckshop) is open Monday to Friday (Flexischool orders) at both first and second breaks (over the counter sales not available Monday first break).

Our Tuckshop aims to provide an affordable food service that encourages our children to choose healthy meal options.

Nearly everything is made fresh each day using seasonal fresh produce. Many items are free from gluten, eggs and dairy. The Tartan Tuckerbox can also provide your children with homemade birthday treats or ice blocks delivered straight to their classroom.

The Tartan Tuckerbox is a member of the Queensland Association of School Tuckshops and as such, receive a wealth of information about nutrition and how to apply good principles of nutrition in school tuckshops. Our Tuckshop Manager regularly attends seminars on nutrition and safe food-handling practices.

The Tuckshop Manager is a paid employee along with two casual Tuckshop Assistants. This small team runs the Tartan Tuckerbox with the assistance of a merry band of much-valued volunteers.
