Ashgrove Arts and Literature Festival
Ashgrove State School is proud to host the Ashgrove Arts & Literature Festival – an annual community event focused on literature and creativity. Commencing Monday 26th August and running through to Friday 30th August the theme for 2019 is “Reading is my Secret Power”.
An exciting program of author talks and presentations, visual arts displays and activities, Shake n Stir drama performance, choir performance and workshop, book character parade and dance performances has been organised for the week and it looks set to be an exciting event for our students and community.
The school hosts each year a Home Reader Information Session to demonstrate to parents of children in the lower grades how to use the home reader effectively to increase children’s reading fluency and comprehension and discuss reading routines at school.
