Homework has a high priority at Tauranga Boys' College. Doing homework each night develops good work habits and gives students a much better chance to achieve to their potential at school. Regular homework teaches students self-discipline and concentration, it reinforces work done in class and it prepares students for exams.
It is school policy that homework is set on a regular basis for all students. Our aim is to set small amounts of homework regularly in preference to setting large amounts occasionally.
Form Three students should expect up to one hour per night.
Form Four students should expect up to one and a half hours per night.
Form Five, Six and Seven students should expect up to two hours per night.
Boys may be given detentions if homework is not completed.
You Always Have Homework
Homework is a series of tasks set by your teacher to be completed by a certain date. This may involve taking notes, reading, doing exercises or skills activities, completing assignments or revising for tests.
If students use the homework diary properly, it will help them to be well organised and to keep up to date.
