Ascot State School P&C Association School Building Fund
The Ascot State School Parents & Citizens’ Association (P&C) operates a School Building Fund which accepts donations from parents and the community. The P&C uses the School Building Fund solely for the acquisition, construction or maintenance of our school buildings. The School Building Fund is managed by a responsible person appointed by the P&C Executive. School Building Fund donations are only spent on projects that are approved by the P&C and in accordance with Australian Taxation Office Guidelines. Parents are invited to make contributions to the School Building Fund which are tax deductible.
Air-Conditioning - A staged proposal was adopted by the School and P&C in early 2018. Currently 28 of 32 classrooms have AC installed and paid for by the P&C, with all classrooms in B Block getting AC during term 1 of 2020. The hall was also air-conditioned after a donation was received from our federal member with the School providing the balance of the cost this was completed at the start of the 2020 school year. The Queensland government has recently announced a “Cool Schools” policy and Ascot State School has been included on the list so the additional funds to complete the phased installation will hopefully come from the government. The voluntary contribution has been utilised with the addition of school funds to maintenance & replacement all air conditioners.
