Communication and shared family experiences are of primary importance to children's learning and self-esteem and is a partnership between school and home. Teachers, parents and students each have responsibilities.
We believe that homework is important to:
- practise skills taught in the classroom,
- develop study habits and organisational skills,
- develop responsibility,
- involve parents in the learning process,
- pursue extra or special activities.
The particular form of school initiated homework for each unit will be explained at the beginning of the school year.
Individual teachers may require that some homework be completed. Requirements will be discussed at Information Evenings at the beginning of each school year. Parents are encouraged to take an active interest in homework and to assist when necessary.
Homework, provided it is approached correctly by your child, should not intrude unduly on leisure activities. Please discuss homework with your child's teacher if you believe it is excessive or too difficult.
