Tuckshop trip one of a day’s highlights

GOING to the tuckshop is one of the highlights of some Gladstone State High students' days.

Ambur Slater, Angelique O'Connor, Victoria Shannon, Samantha Whitmore, Flaire Watson and Joel McAullay had nothing but praise about their tuckshop when the Observer visited.

"I eat tuckshop every day," year 7 student Ambur said.

"I had chicken and kale salad today. I hadn't tried it until today, its yum. We had a lot of junk at our primary school. It's pretty good for a ginormous school."

Victoria said she loved how you could walk in and out of the tuckshop quickly.

"It's like a market and I love the Peri Peri chicken burgers," she said.

Year 12 student Flaire said the variety of food was the best.

"The potato bake and the chicken burger is amazing," she said.

"There is so much to choose from. They made me a fruit salad the other day when I was sick."

Joel said tuckshop was good for other reasons.

"It makes your bag light," he laughed.

"I am a big fan of the caesar sub, it's delectable."

Samantha said she gets really happy when her mum gives her money.
