As well as helping with homework and seeing it is completed, we encourage parents to keep their daughters up to date with current events in the media. We would also like to emphasise the importance of students developing an interest in reading age-appropriate books that expand and build upon their current interests.
Homework will assist students to:
Homework will be meaningful and relevant.
Recognising that students need time to pursue other interests, teachers will work alongside the student to manage their workload. For example,
Year 9 - up to 1 hour in total per school day
Year 10 - up to 1½ hours in total per school day
Years 11 and 12 - up to 2 hours in total per school day
Year 13 - up to 3 hours in total per subject per week (this includes study periods at school.)
Homework needs to have appropriate deadlines and be respectful of home and family time
Homework will not be required during holiday periods; appropriate self-directed study during holiday periods is the student's responsibility.
The policy will be made available to parents in the handbook.
