The purpose of homework is to enable the students to enrich their courses through independent reference, to master basic skills through practice, and to retain class work through review.
The recommended time that should be allotted to homework each day:
- Gr. 1 and 2: 20 mins nightly
- Gr. 3 and 4: 20 – 40 minutes nightly
- Gr. 5 and 6: 60 minutes
- Gr. 7 and 8: 60 to 90 minutes
Even if homework is not assigned, students should spend the recommended time reading for it is an important precursor to literacy. Parents are encouraged to support their child and the school by endeavouring to provide a quiet place to study.
If a student is unable to complete assigned homework, the parent should write a note giving reason(s).
