Talara Primary College is the first state school on the Sunshine Coast to be assessed and awarded the Australian School Canteen Association (ASCA) 5 Star Accreditation.
ASCA's 5 Star Canteen Accreditation programme was implemented at the start of 2013 and is the only national quality accreditation for school canteens/tuckshops in Australia.
ASCA identified the need for a national quality accreditation for school canteens/tuckshops to provide principals, P&C Committees and parents with assurance their canteen/tuckshop meets all the required standards of quality.
The Accreditation focuses on five key criteria:1.Staff competencies2.The tuckshop as part of the school environment3.Quality products and service4.Regulatory compliance and a healthy environment5.Systems and Procedures
The students at Talara Primary College already know the food is great, now it is official that all operations are 5 star. A massive congratulations and thank you to our P&C and the terrific tuckshop team.
