What’s the best way to pack bags?

Please ask the customer first if they are happy for you to help them pack their bags. We recommend packing thoughtfully with heavier items on the bottom, lighter things on top. Try to keep similar foods together. Don't place cleaning products and food in the same bag, and please be careful with the eggs!

Remember you are representing the school. Please always be polite and courteous to the supermarket customers and be ready to explain to customers why we are raising funds for the school. It is important to be respectful, friendly and ready with a winning smile!

What happens the day of the event?

The volunteers will meet at the Customer Service desk, at the main entrance on the ground floor, 10 minutes before their time slot starts. A Parents Association Committee member will be there to meet the volunteers at the start of each time slot to update them accordingly.
