Well done 🥳👏 Hope you had helpers, that's a great day. With over the counter and online orders we hit just over 300 orders today at our primary school of 850. Would have been so stuck without our 2 lovely volunteers (and my amazing coworker Tarissa😘🥳)

Reading all these comments makes my life worthwhile and reinforces my love for all you tuckshop people out there! 😍

Friday is universal tuckshop day at our school too. 1200+ transactions today across the three serving periods of breakfast, morning tea and lunch. It was hot today too so we sold over 700 drinks. We are quite a large school, Years 5 - 12. We have awesome volunteers. 😁

Great work ‘Ipswich Girls Grammer’ T/S Team!! It must be in the air... we had 186 FLEXISCHOOLS orders today in our school of 410! We love online ordering!!! Barb Bardsley Sarah Julie Elizabeth Chick Lois Firth!! Thanks for being awesome!!

Ain't nothin like a tuckshop on a Friday! Well done Ipswich, hope you have your feet up!

Awesome work well done 🤟 have a fantastic weekend

Wow my onlines were 62 and that was a BIG day!

We had 399 transactions today at Brightwater on the Sunshine Coast! And that was without Preps ordering yet.

Frantic Fridays

Leanne Bevis could you imagine this many

Whoa!! I was spent after 100+ 😂
