The Ashgrove State School Parents and Citizen’s Association has an Amateur Swimming Club, known as the ‘Ashgrove Aces’. Club nights are held each Monday night in Term 1 and Term 4. Swimmers arrive from 5.45pm for a 6.15pm start and finish around 8pm. Club night is a fantastic opportunity for children to develop their swimming and competition skills in a relaxed, non-threatening environment. All strokes are offered each night and children are able to elect which events they would like to participate in. The Club is strongly involved in inter-club Carnivals, Brisbane Swimming Association and Queensland Swimming Association meets.
“Ashgrove Aces” has an excellent tradition in competition and achievements and it is continually producing members who achieve at State Level. Come along and join the activities of the Club. An Aces Swim Club Membership Form is available on the website.

Chess coaching for students from Year 1 and above is conducted by Gardiner Chess in the back of the library on Wednesday mornings from 7.35am to 8.35am. The skilled coaches provide the students with excellent tactics to improve playing skills. Students in the chess club have the opportunity to play in inter-school competitions.
Students can register and pay at the Gardiner Chess website.
All students are welcome to join a free informal chess club which runs on Monday afternoons from 3.00pm-3.45pm on the tables outside the SAKG kitchen. This play is largely supervised by parents and anyone from our school community may join in and play.
