Once a month Jasmines school has Tuck-shop day where the parents bring a plate of food and then the food is sold to the children at very cheap prices. There are no weekly lunch orders so tuck-shop day is very exciting for the children.
This is a fundraising activity but also a learning experience for the children, as items are sold for as little as 10 cents and the children need to work out what they can buy and how much change they get. They are encouraged not to bring any more then 2 dollars each. The lunch items are sold first and the children can purchase pies, sausage rolls, pizzas or whatever has been bought on the day. And then out come the treats. A few things that I noticed this morning were cupcakes, lamingtons, and homemade jelly cups!
Our contribution to todays Tuck-shop were chocolate coated strawberries, Yum!
