The homework policy has been developed in consultation with the P & C Association.
Homework serves a number of purposes:
reinforcing learning at school
- developing the discipline needed in a number of occupations where employees take work home
- preparation for High School, where homework is set for most students.
Amount of work
Teachers are not obliged to set homework but usually some work will be expected to be completed at
home. The following times would generally be considered by teachers as upper limits for the various year
Upper Primary (Years 5 and 6): 30–40 minutes per night Monday to Thursday.
- Middle Primary (Years 3 and 4): 20–30 minutes per night Monday to Thursday.
- Lower Primary (Years Prep, 1 and 2): 10–20 minutes per night Monday to Thursday.
This may vary at the beginning and end of terms.
