Homework Policy

Homework is an essential part of our school program: 

  • it is based on lessons taught in class.
  • students should be able to complete the homework with minimal assistance.
  • younger students will need assistance with reading.
  • assignments may be written work, including projects and reading,
    including studying material taught in class.
  • all children need to read something of their choice every day!  

Homework is assigned for several reasons:

  • to reinforce skills taught in class
  • to complete work not done in class
  • to commit to memory ideas or concepts
  • to work on an assigned project over a period of time
  • to allow time to collect information
  • to develop regular and independent work habits
  • to develop responsibility

 Homework is assigned to children in Grades 1 to 6 on a regular basis:

  • Grades 1 and 2: to a maximum of 30 minutes
  • Grades 3 and 4: to a maximum of 45 minutes
  • Grades 5 and 6: to a maximum of 60 minutes

A Student's homework responsibilities are:

  • to list homework assignments in the school agenda
  • to bring home all the materials needed to do the homework properly
  • to use the appropriate exercise books and stencils
  • to do all the written work neatly and carefully
  • to consider study work as important as written work
  • to seek help if needed
  • to return the assigned work to school on time
