The School has an active P&C Association and General Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month in the staff room. An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in March each year. The dates of all P&C meetings are advertised in the school’s weekly newsletter, the “Digest”. All parents are very welcome to become members of the P&C and participate fully at meetings. To become an eligible member with voting rights, an Application for P&C Membership (PDF, 296 KB) form must be submitted and membership applications are voted upon at the Annual General Meeting and at the end of each General Meeting.
The role of the P&C at Ascot State School is wide and varied, covering a lot more than the usual fundraising activities traditionally associated with P&C committees. The P&C Executive manages a significant budget and works with a number of P&C sub-committees including Friends of Music, Swim Club, Tuckshop, Physical Environment, Uniform Shop and Friends of Visual Arts and Design to deliver a broad range of services for the benefit of the school and wider community.
The P&C Executive comprises the P&C President, Vice President(s), a Secretary and a Treasurer.
The P&C extends a warm welcome to all new parents of the school and invites you to get involved in one or more of the many P&C activities, starting with the Welcome Group.
The P&C President is automatically a member of the School Council, the governing group which sets the strategic direction for Ascot, as in 2014 it became an Independent Public School.
