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.
