School Community and Events

The Ascot State School P&C hosts a range of activities to engage new families including the Prep Welcome BBQ in term 4.  This is proudly sponsored by the local post office.  A term calendar of events is forwarded to all families at the start of each term. 

The Ascot State School P&C hosts ‘friend-raiser’ lunches and movie nights at local venues to encourage parents to make new friends and to make new families welcome to our Ascot community.

Every class at Ascot State School has a parent volunteer who is the class parent representative.  The class parent representative circulates information directly from members of the P&C executive directly to all families.  Key roles and responsibilities include:

  • Assist with gathering parent details and circulating a parent list to all families

  • Assist with sourcing volunteers for Book Club, ABDO and other P&C initiatives

  • Forward invites to parents for P&C events including Year Level Lunches

  • Welcome new families to the class and provide support for families when needed

  • Attend Class Parent Rep meetings once per term

  • Assist with class rosters as needed eg swimming, excursions – ONLY if asked by the classroom teacher.​

Book club

Book Club is run by the parents as a service to the students and a fundraiser for the School.  Scholastic Australia, book publishers for over 25 years, issue four Book Clubs per year, one in each term.  

Books suitable for Years P-6 are offered at a discounted price to the students.  The Book Club orders earn bonus points which are then exchanged for resources for the school.  To date, many books and resources have been acquired thanks to the support Book Club receives.  Order forms are sent home and must be returned to school by the date specified.  There are only two methods of payment, the first preference is by credit card (on line credit card payment instructions can be found on the order form) and cheques made payable to ‘Scholastic Book Club’.  We cannot accept cash.

To assist the parents who run the Book Club, volunteers are needed.  The processing can take as little as one hour to complete with many helpers.  Help is required on the day the orders are accepted, and also approximately two weeks later to assist with the receiving and delivery of books to the classes.  If there were one parent from each class this second stage would take approximately 15 minutes.

Banking

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia offers accounts to children at Ascot.  A yellow bank book is provided and children bring this to school each Wednesday.  Again, this is a service that the school is able to provide through the volunteers who meet each Wednesday in the office count and bank the money.

Mother’s day and father’s day stalls

These are run to provide a service and are not profit making events for the P&C. They are held a few days before Mother’s Day (second Sunday in May) and Father’s Day (first Sunday in September.)
