Homework Guidelines

Homework refers to any learning activity that students are required by the school to complete outside of curriculum time. This includes any extension of the classroom work, revision of school work, preparation of lessons, tests and examinations, projects, research, electronic work such as blogs and online assignments. As far as possible, most work should be completed in school.

To ensure that students benefit from the homework issued by the school, we would like to seek parents' cooperation in the following areas:

  • Create a home environment conducive for studying and completion of homework;
  • Supervise and provide support for child’s learning;
  • Reinforce good study habits and attitudes;
  • Be mindful of the stresses arising from school homework and out-of-school activities, and help the child prioritise his/her time among these activities; and
  • Work in partnership with teachers to support child’s learning and development.
