St Joseph’s School Tuckshop operates each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. While our school tuckshop is overseen and co-ordinated by a convenor, it relies entirely on parent volunteers to deliver this valuable service to the school community. If you are interested in volunteering 1/2 a day, once a month, please let the school know and your name can be passed on to the convenor. We look forward to having new faces in the tuckshop!
St Joseph’s has an online ordering system called FlexiSchools. This system allows parents, students and staff to place orders from home, work or school at any time. The payment is also done online, so less paper bags, cash, cheques, and envelopes are sent to school. As well as being convenient for parents and staff, the online orders are much faster and easier for the tuckshop staff to process – so it makes everyone’s life a little easier. FlexiSchools is well established and tested, operating in hundreds of schools across Australia. However, if you wish to continue to use a paper bag than you may do so by writing your child’s name and class on the front of a brown paper bag. Bags can then be placed in your child’s classroom tuckshop box, at the start of the day. Class tuckshop boxes are then delivered by students to the tuckshop by 9am each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Tuckshop workers then process orders ready for first break.
Getting online is easy and only takes a few minutes to register. Simply go to www.flexischools.com.au and click “Register Now”. You will be sent an email with further instructions on how to complete the registration. Once registered, you can start placing orders immediately. If you have any questions, FlexiSchools provide a great help desk on 1300 361 769, or you can contact them via their website.
There are a variety of payment options supported, including Visa, Mastercard (credit and debit) and Bank Transfer. The system operates via a pre-paid account, so you no longer have to worry about the manual process of sending payments into school, and you can easily budget your student’s spending and expenses throughout the year.
We look forward to seeing your next order online!
If you have any questions about the online services, please ask at the school office for more information.
