The Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) aims to help enrich every student's experience by supporting Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology (QASMT) events, activities and projects. The P&C provides a platform for parents to contribute to the success of QASMT with as much or as little time as you can spare to volunteer.

If you would like to join the P&C send us an email via qasmtpandc@gmail.com

  • President: Winand D’Souza;
  • VP: Alwin Chan;

In the weeks ahead we will be asking P&C members to come forward to participate in the following Support and Working groups:

As you are aware, our school community has been impacted by news in the media of the possibility of relocation of QASMT. It has been fantastic to see everyone coming together and supporting efforts to keep our school where it is. Please keep sending your messages in to the influencers and decision makers.

The Refectory is open every day from 7.00am – 3.00pm for all school students, and offers a variety of freshly-made and nutritious food; including daily specials, vegetarian options, hot food, sandwiches, muffins, snacks, fruit and drinks.

Commencing in Term 2, a variety of breakfast items will be available, as well as freshly prepared milkshakes. 

It is recommended that students order their food online through Flexischools, an easy and quick online payment and ordering system, which ensures students receive their preferred menu item. Flexischool orders for same day delivery, need to be completed online before 8.00am.

From Chef Mark Cohen

“We have reinvented the operation of our Refectory to produce high quality café and restaurant style food at affordable prices. The key to success is by offering a variety of healthy balanced menu items, with our focus on sustaining young minds for the learning day. Most products are made fresh on site, from our curry paste to our slices. This term our focus has been on our hot healthy meals, ranging from fried rice, to laksa and our Italian pasta specials.”

The Corporate Services Team values feedback about our facilities, so if your child has anything to report or advise, please email facilitiesrequest@qasmt.eq.edu.au.
