Welcome to JHSS Tuckshop we are open Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 7.30am to 12pm for all year levels. Starting week 2 term 1.
On the 12th February 2019, we will be opening our doors for all parents to come in. It's a great opportunity to see how the tuckshop operates, taste some samples of our homemade products and meet our dedicated tuckshop team.
2017 saw our Tuckshop becoming online ordering only via flexischools. Friday's saw the introduction of specialty items and returning favorites. If you have any suggestions pop in and have a chat with Mel.
Students are able to purchase items such as chips, biscuits, drinks, ice blocks over the counter during the first break after dismissal from their teachers.
All Volunteers are welcome. The tuckshop can only remain open with the help of volunteers. Typically, our volunteers come in for one day a month. Alternatively, if you can spend an hour or more any day, any time between 8.30am - 12pm. It's a great way to meet other parents, help the kids, and have some fun!
Smart Choices - Traffic light Food System
Our tuckshop operates under the smart choices guidelines as laid out by the department of education. Our menu is balanced and assessed using this system that is designed to encourage healthy eating without the school environment. The system applies to the tuck shop, the school and any P&C run events. JHSS has also chosen to adopt this system in our OSHC program. In essences, foods have been categorised into Green, Amber or Red. Green = Eat Plenty; Amber = Select Carefully; Red = Occasionally

Introducing Our Tuckshop Convenor
Hi, my name is Mel Crowhurst.
My family moved to Australia in 2008 and once my boys started school I found myself home alone. Since I enjoy cooking and baking I felt I could use my skills to help in the Tuckshop and started Volunteering in 2011 as my way to help the school and the P&C and make new friends.
I also enjoy sewing, needle work & craft and being involved in my sons local Cub Scout Pack. I spent 4 years as the P&C Secretary before stepping down and taking on the Tuckshop Convenor role when our long time standing convenor moved on.
Just finished my 1st Volunteer morning at the tuck shop! Thanks, Mel and Janelle. It was super easy and A lot of fun 😊.
If you are thinking of volunteering, even just one day a month, get in touch with Mel Crowhurst. You'll be glad you did!...Loretta
It's great that it is only a few hours now. A fun social morning and then still time for other things in the afternoon... Linda
