Homework Policy

Underlying Principles

Purposeful homework plays an important part in a student’s learning and in developing positive study habits. A reasonable amount of homework is seen as a worthwhile part of the School Program and an integral part in the development of responsibility and the production of quality work.

At the Parent/Teacher Information Evenings held at the beginning of each year, teachers have the opportunity to introduce parents to the class expectations concerning homework tasks and routines.
