Food served to students by Smart Bites complies with the Queensland Government's Smart Choices Guidelines. Most of our menu items are prepared on-site and include many options for children with allergies or intolerances. We try our best to be as inclusive as possible and invite feedback from parents, caregivers, students, and staff. Our team is always looking for new and exciting options.
Volunteers are always welcome and we invite you to come and help us at the service. You can sign up on our volunteer roster at: https://signup.zone/smart-bites
Ordering from Smart Bites
Smart Bites operates five days a week - Monday to Friday. Full tuckshop service is available and should be pre-ordered via the Qkr! app. Students can purchase over the counter items at second break once they are released to play. Our preference is for parents and caregivers to order online as our system has all information about the child including allergies.
Smart Bites also offers a staff menu. Staff can place orders on the Qkr! app or come to the counter before 8.30am each morning. For your convenience, we have EFTPOS facilities available.
Orders can be placed up until 8.30am the morning of service except for Sushi on Friday (late orders via the school office will incur a $3.00 admin fee).
Friday sushi orders must be placed by 7.30am on Friday mornings (no cancellations or refunds).
Phone orders will not be accepted by the school or Smart Bites.
Smart Bites staff will take calls to work through technical issues.
