Why become a member?

QAST provides services to empower you as a member, and help you make your tuckshop a place of pride in the school community.

Just like your tuckshop, we also need support from our community. It is only with the support of membership that QAST is able to exist.

The team at QAST has a great appreciation and respect for the diversity of school tuckshops and we would like all our members to feel like a unique part of our large extended family as we support each other on our individual journeys. There’s nothing better than when your tuckshop just works!
