Way back when it made some sense for stay at home mums to go down and volunteer in the school tuck-shop at lunchtimes. They enjoyed the social aspects, the school could either make more money or lower prices, and parents could see what their kids were getting up to in school.
But in this modern era, where only the very wealthy can afford the luxury of mum staying home, the Canberra Times now reports that Parents and Citizens Associations have realised they can’t keep up the gig.
- ”The P&C council is actually considering whether we try talking to the Government about pulling out of running school canteens all together,” she said.
”Whether the provision of lunch is something the Government takes over is a question we are now asking ourselves.”
The rules have changed, and so must we.
