Ironside State School's Parents' and Citizens' Association operates three shops: a bookshop, tuckshop and uniform shop, to provide the school community with various resources to support student learning and well-being. Any profits from the school shop directly support improvement of the school facilities.
Mrs Wurth is always very keen to hear from people interested in volunteering to help in any of the school shops and any assistance is greatly appreciated.Important information regarding school shops
The shops are located on the ground floor of E Block, behind the Main Administration building (A Block)

TuckshopMrs Jane WURTH
Mondays - Wednesday
The school tuckshop operates to provide parents with convenient, healthy meal options for their children.
Volunteer parents and friends assist Mrs Wurth in running the tuckshop. Mrs Wurth is always keen to hear from people interested in volunteering one day a month. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Morning Tea, Lunch, snacks and drinks and are available for purchase. All orders for tuckshop should be placed in the classroom tuckshop box before 9:00am each day. The child's name, class and order should be written clearly on a paper bag, which contains the money for the order. Menus and price lists for tuckshop are sent home with the school newsletter at the end of each term and are also available here from the school website.
Prep students will be able to order lunch from Term 2.
The Tuckshop is open for over the counter sales at morning tea for Years 2 – 7 students only - Prep and Grade 1 students must bring their own morning tea to school.
The tuckshop is open to all students for after lunch snacks.
Any outstanding amounts owed to the tuckshop should be paid before the end of each term.
The tuckshop opens the second week of school at the beginning of each school year and closes on the second last week of the school year.
If you are unable to assist in the tuckshop, you may like to join our homebaking team. Parents and friends are rostered to bake a slice, some muffins or slices once a fortnight. These items are then sold at morning tea. Please contact the tuckshop during operating hours if you can assist with homebaking.
Uniform ShopMrs Jane WURTH (Tuckshop Convenor)
Mondays - Wednesdays
The school uniform shop operates to provide parents with a convenient option to purchase the approved Ironside State School Uniform. The volunteers are also happy to offer advice to new parents to the school on general community related information to assist with the transition for the children as well as the parents.
Volunteer parents and friends run the uniform shop in consultation with Mrs Wurth, the tuckshop convenor. The Uniform Shop closes on the second-last Wednesday of Term 4 and is NOT open during the last week of school.
Wearing the Ironside State School uniform assists in maintaining the tone within the school and gives the children a sense of belonging. It also eliminates undesirable competition in dress. We appreciate your co-operation in ensuring the children wear the uniform to school and to school events. It is important that the uniform be worn as a complete ensemble and not mixed with other garments. All prep students are to wear the yellow legionnaire's cap.
The expense of lost gear can really add up, so labelling is a great cost-saving measure. Labelling your child's belongings really does help. If something is named, the school is only too happy to return it to your child. There are plenty of ways to label your child's belongings, including hard-to-name items like shoes and socks.
The Queensland Government has encouraged all schools to implement a sun safe policy by the end of the 2008 school year. The Queensland Cancer Council advises that an important element of a Sun Smart programme is the incorporation of a sun shirt into the school uniform. As our school has a swimming pool which is utilised for physical education, lessons and a swimming club, it is considered a priority for the school to make appropriate swimwear available for purchase by parents.
Silicone swim caps in blue with Ironside text in white can be purchased directly from the school uniform shop. Lycra material caps in the school house colours of blue (Oxley), green (Cook), red (Flinders) and yellow (Sturt) can also be purchased directly from the uniform shop.
Babes in the Shade
The swimwear supplier to the school is a Queensland company specialising in quality sun protection wear. The swimwear range is made from durable, quick drying material which is colourfast in chlorinated water. All Babes in the Shade sun shirts have an ultraviolet protection factor of 50+ - the highest available in Australia.Babes in the Shade brochure
