Homework is both important and necessary. Homework done regularly can be equivalent to a great deal of additional study.
When should I Give My Homework In?
Write in your planner when work is due in. Check your planner every evening to make sure you have sufficient time to complete it.
Who can help me?
We actively encourage you to ask your parents and carers to assist you with Homework as they are a valuable source of information. Other people who can help are Teachers, older siblings, grandparents, friends, librarians.
Where can I get more information?
Books, magazines, newspapers, television, radio, computer and the internet can all be used to access useful/additional information.
