In 2019, Ashdale Secondary College launched its Breakfast Club. Thanks, in part, to the generous support of Brumbies Darch and Wanneroo Uniforms, we can provide free breakfast in cosy surroundings for all our students. The Club runs from 8 am until 8.30 am every morning and has a variety of foodstuffs available for students to help themselves to – Milo, hot chocolate, fruit juice, toast with a variety of spreads such as butter, jam, honey, cheese and vegemite. There is always plenty of fruit and even tasty sweet surprises such as pastries and healthy cupcakes – and it is all FREE to ensure not a single Ashdale student needs to start the day hungry.
Also, we now have bowls of fruit available throughout the school day down at Student Services for anyone who misses the Breakfast Club! Many staff give up their morning lie-ins to come and make sure everything runs smoothly, and this is another example of how wonderful a College we have.
Lunch Clubs & Activities
Ashdale Secondary College has a strong focus on supporting student wellbeing and providing opportunities for students to do exciting things. The number of clubs and activities offered at lunchtime continues to grow, with student voice allowing students to have a say in the types of clubs that are available to them.
The club timetable shows the range of clubs available, with something on offer each day of the week. Participation has been excellent – and the College is always open to new club ideas from our students!

Ashdale Recycle is a bicycle recycle club for students. It is held before school, lunchtime and after school on Wednesdays. It started in 2018 with funding from the schools’ Innovation Grant then over the Christmas, the College’s P&C funded a purpose-built shed to continue the excellent work. Local community members have donated bikes with Malaga Cycles being very generous in donating spare parts and old bicycles.
The club aims to teach students basic hands-on bicycle mechanics and team-building skills. The bicycles the students work on (once restored) are donated to local charities who then distribute them to young people less fortunate. To date, students have repaired and donated 23 bikes (13 in 2018 and 10 this year) the bikes have travelled to Broome, remote Aboriginal communities throughout WA and to Mozambique, Africa via Dismantle and Bicycles for Humanity.
The 30 or so students involved should feel very proud of the work they have completed as the young people who ultimately receive the donation will massively benefit from owning a bike which can positively affect their lives.
The Club is currently working on around 40 bikes, and we are always happy to accept community donations. So don’t put the old bike on the verge or to landfill, please contact Steve Hooper on firstname.lastname@example.org
