Homework Guidelines


At St Clare’s we believe that homework should not cause family stress or jeopardise the right of children to enjoy a balanced lifestyle.  Our approach supports the importance of family time, relaxation and play, and acknowledges the varied outside of school hours activities in which the students participate.

At St Clare’s the purpose for homework is to:

  • encourage opportunities for the students to review and reinforce learning that is initiated in the classroom;
  • develop self-discipline and effective study habits; and
  • provide parents/caregivers with an opportunity to be directly involved in their child’s education.
