As professional educators, we believe that:
- Homework is an important self-discipline activity and provides an opportunity for a student to revise, practise, and expand on, what is learnt in class.
- Making mistakes are just as important in learning as getting correct answers and this applies equally to homework undertaken by a student.
- Regular assessment of homework tasks is essential to gauge the level of student learning and provide assistance in the learning journey of each child.
- Homework must be regularly marked by the teacher setting the work
Recognition is given to the need for adequate rest and recreation for all children after completion of the school day. Homework set should not impinge greatly on a student’s time for life events such as participation in community groups, cultural activities, sports, etc. The following list highlights the expectations for homework at our school.
