Regulation of Homework:
Every class has a homework timetable that relates to the learning pathway that they are on. Homework is allotted keeping in mind the health and well-being of pupils, and judicious control is exercised by the class teachers, which is reviewed by the Head of the School. The co-operation of parents is essential for the holistic development of the child. The amount of written work to be done at home will be controlled and there will be a proper division of written and reading homework.
Type of Homework:
Homework will differ from subject to subject, but reasonable homework would include:
- Work designed to give children practice in a particular process or operation.
- The application of principles that are explained in the class.
- Reading (study) with a view to acquiring principles, essential facts or formulae or illustrative examples.
- Collecting information relating to specified topics or for debates.
No holiday homework is set for the Lower Primary Classes (I to V).
Request to the Parents:
It forms an important part of a student’s education since it reinforces the work covered in the classroom. Home assignments aim to develop the responsibility, time management, self-reliance, autonomy and perseverance in the child. It is important for parents to realize that while it is their role to assist their children in establishing a regular time for the purpose of completing home assignments, too much parental participation or involvement in projects/homework, defeats the purpose for which they are assigned.
