HOMEWORK

Parents are reminded that the homework guidelines are outlined on page 28 of the Student Handbook.  Please see below for details:

Homework

This is an integral  part of secondary schooling that helps students develop self-discipline and organisational skills.  Students should revise their classwork regularly and extend their knowledge by wide reading.  The amount of time spent on homework and private study will vary but should average:

Years 5 and 6

30 minutes for Year 5 and 40 minutes for Year 6, several nights per week.  This must include an additional 20 minutes of reading every night.

Years 7 and 8

1 .5 – 2 hours per night, five times a week.

Years 9 and 10

2 – 2.5 hours per night, five times a week.

Years 11 and 12

20 hours a week.

Students in Years 7 – 10 are not expected to do homework or assessment tasks over the school holiday periods, except for reading novels and gathering data for various projects.
