Home Learning

Home learning is an essential elemant in every student's learning.  Home learning is set for the following reasons:

  1. It extends the time students spend on active learning; home learning also extends and consolidates what has been learned in class.
  2. It gives students the time to practise skills at their own pace.
  3. It allows students and teachers to see whether classroom learning has been understood.
  4. It helps students to be better prepared for fututre lessons.
  5. It helps develop independent learning skills needed for success in school and in the work-place.
  6. It allows parents to be more actively involved in understanding and monitoring progress.

In the academic year 2010-2011 we introduced a new 'Department Home Learning Not Completed' stamp.  When a student fails to meet a home learning deadline their Student Planner will be stamped with this.  When parents make their weekly check of their child's planner if they see this stamp we would ask that you immediately discuss with your child the reasons why they did not complete the home learning on time so that it can be avoided in the future.  Are they spending too much time on MSN or Facebook? Do they need help in managing their time? Can you help them improve their organisational skills?  Are they struggling with the subject?

The support of parents in helping your child achieve their best in their studies is key to their academic success.
