Homework and Home Learning Challenges


Homework is probably the single topic which we receive the widest range of views. Our homework procedures specify that homework will be set for 10 - 30 minutes (depending on level) for 4 nights per week and will consist purely of literacy and/or mathematical knowledge exercises (refer: Our School/Board of Trustees/Policies and Procedures). To supplement homework expectations we offer a programme of optional Home Learning Challenges that students are encouraged to participate in. When a predetermined set of challenges is completed to a satisfactory standard the student will receive a badge at school assembly. Homework challenges are designed to align with our school’s vision and values and focus on the NZ Curriculum Key Competencies. They are hopefully interesting and fun and promote collaboration  between home, school and the community.
