Dragon Boat Corporate Day
Ashmore State School once again participated in the Currumbin Dragon Boat Club’s Corporate Day.
This is the 2nd year Ashmore has competed and coming 4th last year gave the team something to aspire to.
The team was made up of teachers, teacher aides, P & C members, students, parents and the wider community.
The day was glorious, the water calm and the team strong. We made the finals and raced against Arundel State School, Pacific Pines State School and Marymount College.
Ashmore came a credible 3rd and vowed to defend their title and hopefully improve next year.
A great day was had by all. Keep an eye out in the foyer of the school office for a display of the trophy and the team uniform, which was made possible through the generosity of a number of sponsors.
Very Special thank you to our sponsors – major sponsors Create Security and Razor LEDS as well as XBC Business Centre.
We look forward to continuing this annual event and with it becoming a new Ashmore State School tradition.

Ashmore Community Garden Update
On Sunday the 18th of August we installed the newest part of the Ashmore community garden. Members of Gold Coast Permaculture, Ashmore School and Ashmore community garden had a great day in the garden creating 2 new “bio intensive” beds. We also installed a number of citrus trees around the oval and near the back gate of the school.
We will be in the garden every week on Tuesday morning from 8am working with the kids from "Helping Hands". Parents and kids are welcome to join us too. Pop down and say hi to Judy and Vanessa.
Ashmore community garden has its next meeting on 5th of September in the conference room of the Carmichael centre at 7pm. Come to find out more, on how to be involved with the community gardens, helping out and harvesting your own fresh and organic produce.
