Sunshine Coast Workshops

SharpReading is finally returning in person to the Sunshine Coast after 2 years of Covid exile.
Make the most of these face-to-face training opportunities.

"SharpReading workshops are a breathe of fresh air.  I have been teaching for quite a while and it is so great to come across some common sense and back to basics uncomplicated direction. I feel that I will now be freed up to teach my year 3/4 class with students that range from non-readers to fluent readers with a clear progression that does not come as a result of hours and hours of planning and organising."
