Ascot State School believes in developing the potential of each individual child. We aim to promote and develop that capacity within an environment of care and support and through a range of opportunities within the broad education program.
My staff and I are committed to the vision of the Department of Education, Training and Employment - clever, skilled and creative Queenslanders. We are proud to be part of a strong public education system, which believes the purpose of education is to meet the needs of different students for high levels of educational attainment.
At Ascot State School we take pride in the tradition and reputation of the school for pursuing the highest standards of behaviour of the students and in the academic, sporting and music programs.
Students are proud to wear their school uniform which is well recognised in the community and provides children with a sense of belonging. Our school motto Strive to Achieve plays an important part in fostering the wellbeing and personal development of each student.
Our current key strategic direction at Ascot involves:
Off to a Great Start - We acknowledge the importance of the early years for developing strong literacy and numeracy skills for all children. We work closely with parents to ensure a smooth transition to school and provide timely support and enrichment based on individual student needs.
Consolidating the Basics, Endless Possibilities - As young children enter Year 3 they are transitioning from learning to read to reading to learn. Students consolidate the basics of literacy and numeracy and explore a range of innovative concepts and ideas through our STEAM initiatives (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics).
Quality Leadership, Teaching and Learning - The quality of the leadership and the quality of the teaching makes a big difference in successful outcomes at school. Great teaching means extending the skills and knowledge of every student in every class, regardless of their starting point. This is our moral obligation to every child.
Parents as Partners - Ascot State School parents have always been vital to the success of our school. They not only value education but are also supportive of a range of initiatives across the school.
My staff and I look forward to working alongside you, our parents, to prepare our youth for the challenges of the future.
