Homework

PublishingPageContent

Homework at Sarina State School aims to be an educationally enhancing experience by revising and practicing common concepts of literacy and numeracy. A reasonable amount of time for homework has been set so as not to create stress within already busy family routines.

Mathematics and English are the key learning areas covered as part of the homework program. A gradual increase in the time spent on homework has also been adopted to create more demand and challenge as the children move through the year levels.

Parents should consider that reinforcement of common concepts is achieved through regular activities and practise.

For each year level there is a maximum expectation for time to be spent on homework tasks, based on Education Queensland Homework Policy.
