Homework is given to consolidate work done during school. It also provides an opportunity for parents to gain an insight in to some of the work covered in school. Homework is set from Monday to Thursday.

1. As a general rule, every child from First to Sixth Class inclusive is given homework each weeknight.

2. Each child from First Class to Sixth Class should have a homework journal and homework copies. Check that each item of        homework is done and then sign the homework journal.

3. Where exceptional circumstances prevent the completion of homework, please forward an explanatory
  note to the teacher.

4. Do not do the child's homework for him. Work set for homework will have been prepared in class. Please check your child's         homework for neatness and point out mistakes.
