The sculpture garden is located in a beautifully landscaped terraced section of the school. Local artists donated some of the sculptures featured. Also featured is a beautiful mosaic waterfall which cascades down the terrace. Ascot parent and artist-in-residence Bev Ridsdill-Kenny created this mosaic over many months.
The school activities hall was constructed in 1971-72 and largely funded by the P&C and wider school community. The hall is used for many school-based activities including school assemblies, physical education lessons, dance and drama lessons, the school music evenings as well as choir and band practice. It is also used for Arts Council and awards ceremonies as well as fund-raising activities such as school discos and movie nights. Extra-curricular community activities are held in the hall after school.
