St Joseph's embraces a Healthy Lifestyle Policy and part of that is to ensure that food available from the school falls into the healthy foods category. Students do not have access to any soft drinks, lollies or deep-fried foods. As far as possible, foods offered are fresh and wholesome. Students can enjoy home cooked meals specially prepared by volunteers.
Tuckshop is available on Mondays & Fridays at the Primary and on Fridays at the Secondary Campus. We use the QKR! (pronounced Quicker) app by Mastercard, an easy to use phone app that allows parents to place orders from their smart device, reducing the need for the child to bring cash to the school.
The Tuckshop is a wonderful way to inject funds back into the school. It is operated on a volunteer basis with various groups which are organised by Team Leaders. The aim is for groups to work only once a term. Volunteers can join the tuckshop roster by contacting the school office.
St Joseph’s School is a nut aware school. We have a number of students who have allergies to foods such as eggs and nuts and politely request that parents are mindful of this when choosing suitable items for lunch boxes. It is important to us that we minimise the risks to the health of these students. We also request that students do not share food items.
