Homework is a valuable part of schooling because it -


  • Allows for practising, extending and consolidating work done in class
  • Provides training for students in planning and organising time
  • Develops a range of skills in identifying and using information resources
  • Establishes habits of study, concentration and self-discipline, which will serve students for the rest of their lives
  • Strengthens  home-schooling
  • Reaffirms the role of parent and caregivers with the insight into what is being taught in the classroom and the progress of their children


Parents and caregivers can help by-

  • Encouraging children to read
  • Taking an active interest in homework
  • Ensuring that there is time set aside for homework
  • Encouraging and supporting students to complete homework
  • Communicating with teachers any concerns about the nature of homework and their children's approach to the homework
  • Alerting the school to any domestic or extracurricular activities, which may need to be taken into consideration when homework is being set or corrected
  • Homework is set approximately 20-40 minutes per day
  • Using your child's diary as an ongoing form of communication
