Homework and Study
Homework and personal study are an important part of school life. In Years 11, 12 and 13, students should engage in at least two to three hours of homework each night. In order to assist them with the organisation of their homework and to help them develop strong study skills, the school issues students with a homework diary from Years 7-11. This should be used daily for the recording of homework
and assignments and for noting the dates of assessments and the due dates of assignments. It can also be used for the recording of results so that the student can monitor progress. At the front of the diary is information on study skills, which should be used in order to build up and develop good work habits and techniques. This will be further supported by training in appropriate study skills and methods of learning which form part of the Year 11, 12 and 13 Life Skills courses.
