High school is a very different place to primary school, for both students and parents/guardians. Joining the Parents and Friends Network (PFN) at Ashwood High School helps you meet new people whilst supporting your child’s high school experience. Our aim is to enhance the school’s CHOIR value of Community by organising social activities, sharing ideas and fundraising for additional equipment for the benefit of all Ashwood students.

The Ashwood High School PFN meets twice per term on a Wednesday night, from 6.30-8pm. It is a great way to connect with other parents and guardians, support school events and receive updates from senior school staff.

Each year the PFN assists the school community with the following events:

  • Year 7 Welcome BBQ
  • Year 7 Transition Morning Teas
  • End of Year Second Hand Uniform and Book Sale
  • End of Year Raffle
  • WhatsApp Parent Group Chats
  • Ashwood High School Uniform/Books Buy Swap and Sell Facebook Group
  • BBQs on Election Days
  • Cake and refreshment stalls at Winter and End of Year Concerts
  • Refreshment stall at Open Night


New members are welcome anytime and joining is easy. The school newsletter and Compass have regular updates of meeting details. No RSVP required – just turn up! There are many other ways to get involved too. If you are great at cooking a sausage, a keen baker, happy to help run refreshment stalls or the book sales, or even if you have a business or skill that you can offer, please get in touch via email at We’d love to hear from you!
