Piccabeen Canteen (Tuckshop)

Hours & Procedure         

The Piccabeen Canteen is open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8:00am until 2:00pm.
First break is at 10:50am. Between 11:00am-11:25am students can purchase extra items from the tuckshop.
Second break is at 1:00pm. Between 1:10pm-1:35pm students can purchase extra items from the tuckshop.
Orders must be placed by 9:00am in a paper bag handed to the tuckshop or via FlexiSchools ( ).
To place orders, you can provide your own bag or purchase paper bags at the tuckshop. The school also sells re-usable stickybeaks bags. These bags hold more than a paper bag, create less rubbish around our school, are insulated and easy to clean. There are many colours to choose from $10.50 for a lunch wallet or $12.50 for an all-rounder.
If ordering both breaks, 2 bags are required as the food is sent to your child in the bags.
Our menu has been designed to meet the requirements outlined in the Smart Choices – Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for QLD schools (click the link if you would like to review the document ). We prepare a range of healthy meals on-site using fresh ingredients from our school edible garden and local producers.
For a current copy of our menu please see the tuckshop staff or look in the documents section of this website.
Students can purchase seasonal fresh fruit, drinks, scrolls, hard boiled eggs etc. before school. Parents are able to buy a coffee & slice to go.
Staffing & Volunteers
Our tuckshop is operated by the P&C Association and all profits go directly back to the school. The tuckshop convenor is employed part-time to run the tuckshop. We are committed to serving healthy school approved foods.

Volunteers are always needed to help at the tuckshop. If you can help for a couple of hours, please call the school on 5453 2444 and ask to speak with Sam (tuckshop convenor).
