Information Booklet

Parents play a critical role in helping their children to be successful learners at school and it is essential that the partnership between parents and the school is encouraging and supportive. If you have a concern about your child, please make an appointment to see your child’s teacher in the first instance. If concerns are not resolved or if there is a wider school issue, please contact the Principal or Deputy Principal.

The period before school is really important for teachers to prepare work for the class. Parents are asked to avoid making appointments or involving teachers in long discussions before school unless the matter is of extreme urgency.

Homework


For the primary school child, homework's greatest value is in the development of sound study habits. Parents can help greatly by insisting on the child setting aside a regular home study time either before or after tea. Children will often say that they have no homework. This indicates that no actual written exercise for completion has been set by the class teacher but other homework activities such as reading, spelling, tables etc. can still be done in the homework period. The choice can be the student’s and/or parents. The development of regular reading habits is also very important.
