Tuckshop

Our Kimberley Park Tuckshop is open every day - by volunteering some time you can keep it that way!

To order
from the tuckshop it is as easy as
 
 
 on the Flexischools web site then
 
 
 
 
Of course you can continue to order lunches the old-fashioned way.
 

During 2012 our Tuckshop was rebuilt bigger and better. Over $80,000 was expended to add the Uniform shop and a separated preparation and serving space.

Kimberley Park's Tuckshop is a service administered by a paid convenor but runs on volunteer power. Pick up the phone and give Tania and the team a call if you can help out. Grandparents with blue cards are also welcome.

Danielle and her volunteers provide a service vital to our school community and provides a small profit that supports the efforts of the Parents' Association:

In recent years, the levels of obesity and poor dental health in young children and adults have increased dramatically. To help combat this problem, the Department of Education and the Arts has launched a healthy eating and drinking strategy for all Queensland schools. This strategy encourages nutritious foods and drinks and limits unhealthy items such as sweets, fried foods, cakes and soft drinks. The strategy was developed in close consultation with the state’s health representatives and parent associations. The strategy asked schools to follow guidelines that categorise foods by a “traffic light” system:

Green – “Have plenty”

Nutritious foods and drinks including breads, rice, pasta, noodles, vegetables, fruit, lean meat, fish, poultry, nuts and fruit juice.

Amber – “Select carefully”

Foods and drinks with some nutritional value and moderate amounts of saturated fat, sugar or salt, including processed meats, snack food bars and small serves of full-fat milk and yoghurt.

Red – “Serve occasionally"

Non-nutritious foods and drinks that are very high in fat, sugar and salt including all soft drinks, lollies, chocolates and fried foods such as hot chips. The new strategy will apply not only to school canteens but any area where food and drink is supplied in state schools. This includes fundraising events, vending machines, excursions, camps, classroom rewards, sports days and curriculum activities. The strategy does not affect food and drinks in lunches that students and staff prepare at home or birthday cakes that students bring to school. Information about the Healthy Food and Drink Strategy, including a set of frequently asked questions is available from the departmental website
