At the same time, we recognise that our students have commitments outside of school, including sport and jobs and that students should therefore not be overloaded.
The College is committed to providing home learning guidance and resources for students through Canvas for them to work on during each Term at their own pace, to develop them as independent and autonomous life-long learners. Specific home learning may also be set by teachers and if this is the case, it will be recorded on the student portal and feedback provided.
Based on educational research, the following guidance is provided for the amount of time that students should spend on home learning. Note that other commitments, student capacity, and assessment task due dates will be factors that will influence this.
- Years 7 and 8 – minimum 30 mins per day
- Years 9 and 10 – minimum 45 mins per day
- Years 11 and 12 (depending on HSC pathway) – 60+ mins per day
