Writing Program Commences

At Marist College Ashgrove, we want to cultivate good habits of writing.  Not only will this give our boys the skills for creative thinking and expression, but is a vital source of conceptual development and stimulus of the brain’s highest cognition.

For the next three months, all students in Years 5, 7 and 9 will participate in a “Drop Everything and Write” initiative.  Studies have shown that when writing becomes a key focus embedded across curriculum, written language, reading comprehension and spelling improve.

Students are provided with an exercise book to write in and the College encourages all parents/guardians to check these books to offer feedback and encouragement to the boys.
