At the beginning of the term we welcomed Champion Tuckshops (part of the Libelle Group and one of New Zealand’s leading school food and beverage providers) as our new tuckshop provider. Their vision is to empower every learner to reach their potential through nutrition-focused, foodservice solutions. They have teamed up with the Heart Foundation, Fuel4Life, and BioPak to provide the Eat Smart menu.
The aim is to provide children with healthy, fresh, value-for-money, and environmentally sustainable food. Cold meals are served in BioPak packaging, made from sustainably sourced, rapidly renewable materials. Items in the warmers and on the shelves are wrapped in Natureflex cello bags, which are both biodegradable and compostable. The cutlery is a bamboo product, and containers are made from a natural sugar cane pulp.
Both tuck shops are open to all students throughout the day between 8.00 am and 2.10 pm.
