A great deal of consideration is given to the question of homework. Having spent more than six hours at school, reading, writing and working on other core subjects, we believe that our children should not have to spend too much time on further study once they get home.

Homework on regular basis is good training for self-discipline in future studies. Sometimes there is work to finish off; other times homework will reinforce a lesson covered during the day. Best of all, there is always reading! Parents should take the time to read to their children and allow the child to read back the reading material. We believe that reading should always be treated as a pleasure.

Homework should be done in an area without distractions – no background noise like television or family conversations. Some parents prefer to supervise this time, but we ask that they allow the children to make their own mistakes as the teacher needs to know exactly how much of the lesson has been understood.
