We're all in this together! QAST remains open and continues to offer its full range of services.

The QAST office remains open, with all staff working from home and only a phone call or email away to assist tuckshop staff, volunteers and P&Cs/P&Fs/schools with any tuckshop related enquiries you may have. During the next few months QAST will be extending many of our 'member only' services to non-members to ensure all tuckshops are in the best possible position they can be to reopen and continue to provide their school communities with a viable and healthy tuckshop service.
