Homework Tips

Homework is often a revision of what is covered in class. As well as regular weekly homework, your child may have assessments such as assignments or projects with due dates.

Parents can access their child's timetable on the Parent Portal through Sentral. If you need access to this portal, please call the school for your access code and instructions. 

A key to success is being organised. To avoid Thursday night meltdowns about incomplete homework, read our homework tips.

These tips are relevant for all students Kindergarten to Year 12.

  • Ask your child about their homework, know what they are learning about and when assignments are due.
  • Use our term assessment planner (DOCX 53.57KB) to record when assessments and exams are scheduled so you can help your child prepare in advance. Make to-do lists to spread out the workload.
  • Get into a routine of doing homework at a set time, ideally a little each day.
  • Have a set place where the kids can do their homework, with the equipment they’ll need:
    • pens and pencils
    • highlighters
    • scissors
    • glue
    • scrap paper
    • ruler
    • calculator
    • printing paper
    • computer and internet access
    • a printer.
  • Turn mobiles to aeroplane mode or off so there are no disruptions.
  • If there’s no set homework, encourage your child to do some reading. For younger children, it’s great for them to read aloud to you. For older kids, ask them to tell you about what they have been reading.
  • Don’t jump in and give answers. Homework is about helping kids become independent learners.
  • Encourage your child to start assignments as soon as they receive them – this will reduce any night-before stress.
  • Your child needs to do their own projects and assignments. There’s no point submitting work done by anyone other than the student. Teachers need to know what students can do independently.
  • If your child is having difficulty with their homework, contact their class teacher or Year Advisor for help.

  • All students will have a google class room for each of their subjects. They are asked to join at the start of each year. Work assessments are placed on this platofrm regularly by the class teacher.
