Principal’s welcome

Ashwell State School truly believes in developing the potential of each student. The staff at Ashwell State School aim to develop students’ potential within a caring and supportive learning environment.

School motto

Strive to excel

Statement of purpose

At Ashwell State School we have developed and adopted the O.W.L.S Positive Behaviour System which has a view to promoting positive behaviour and values across the school and beyond. Our core values for all members of the school community are:

  • Organisation
  • Wise choices
  • Lifelong learners
  • Safety

Historically, Ashwell State School has been the centre of a small farming community and the school has been determined to continue its ‘tradition of excellence’ in every aspect of school life. Our school has a reputation for pursuing high academic, sporting and behaviour standards. Our students are proud to wear their school uniform, which is well recognised in the community providing our students with a sense of belonging.

At Ashwell State School we strive to excel! The staff and students work together in the learning environment to challenge students to reach their potential and excel. Our focus is on:

  • providing an enjoyable and safe educational setting
  • encouraging innovation and creative thinking
  • fostering an acceptance and respect
  • developing intellectual processes that facilitate independent learning
  • challenging and rigorous teaching and learning programs
  • nurturing the development of the whole child fostering healthy emotional growth and a love of learning.


Our P&C meet each month in our conference room. The meeting date is advertised on our school Facebook page and in the newsletter. Everyone is welcomed by this friendly and hard working group. I encourage parents and carers to come along and be a part of their child’s school life.

Please continue to explore our website to discover the many areas in which we excel and the areas that we continue to develop and maintain in order to provide a well-balanced program for all students.

A fortnightly enewsletter may be downloaded from the website for regular updates on Ashwell State School.

Kind regards
