The tuckshop is extremely well run, with all food preparation and stock done by Ms Haylett and her team. Parents are only needed to assist with sales during breaks. Even if you are only able to help out for ONE shift the entire term, your assistance will be most appreciated.

Mon-Thurs:  10:20-10:50 OR 12:55-13:30

This is also a great low key effort way to stay connected with your highschooler and to meet some awesome parents!

If you are unable to access the google spreadsheet, please email Diane via to let her know when you are able to assist so she can add you to the Roster.
