QAST conducted the Tuckshop Turnaround Project in 2019/2020 with funds from the Queensland Department of Education. Twenty-one school tuckshops took part in the project from across the seven Education Regions. During the project, QAST assisted them with financial issues. Face to face consultations were held with seventeen schools and phone consultations with four. The schools’ Profit and Loss Statements and their menus were analysed to calculate the important financial markers detailed in the table below. These consultations were held with the Principal, P&C representatives and the tuckshop staff to determine the goals and vision for the tuckshop. Learnings from this project have been used to create the Tuckshop Turnaround Checklist.
