Homework is seen as an integral aspect of school life. Each child has a homework diary where, not only is homework written down on a daily basis but the diary also acts as a means of communication between home and the School. Notes to and from the class teacher will be written in the diary. Parents are asked to check the diary nightly, sign and comment if appropriate.
Homework is set four nights per week (Monday to Thursday) in the Primary School and may include unfinished class work from that week. Assignments and projects may be worked on over the weekend. Secondary students will receive homework every school day and most likely will be required to use weekends for research, extension and consolidation. As a guide, students in Year 7 should spend approximately one hour per night on homework. Students in Year 10 should spend up to two hours a night and Year 11 and 12 up to three hours.
