Homework

Homework provides students with the opportunities to consolidate their classroom learning, pattern behaviour for lifelong learning beyond the classroom and involve family members in their learning.  The setting of homework takes into account the need for students to have a balanced lifestyle. 

Homework is:

  • work that enhances student learning
  • purposeful and relevant to students needs
  • appropriate to the phase of learning (early, middle and senior)
  • appropriate to the capability of the student
  • develops the student’s independence as a learner
  • varied, challenging and clearly related to class work
  • work that allows for student commitment to recreational, employment, family and cultural activities.

Homework includes the extension of classwork, independent reading, projects and research, study and preparation for future lessons (getting organised).  It promotes the engagement of independent learning.

Student Assessment

Woree State High School’s assessment policy requires all students to submit all pieces of assessment. Exceptions to this rule are possible only through detailed consultation with relevant Deputy Principal or Head of Department. 

At the beginning of each semester, every student has access via the website to an ‘Assessment Calendar’ which outlines all tasks, the date given and draft and final dates of submission. Failure to complete assessment work may necessitate participation in a supplementary course of study.
