Parents and Friends Association

The Ashwood Parents and Friends Association (P&F) is an active group and is open to all parents and carers of students enrolled at Ashwood School. New members are warmly welcomed to the monthly meetings. The P&F organises social events, fundraising activities and information sessions. Money raised from fundraising efforts benefits the school community. The P&F also manages a Second Hand Uniform Shop and a Parent Resource Library. Members of the P&F are Parent Buddies to new families entering the school community.
