Dear Parent / Guardian,


We had assembly with all of our 1st year students today. The theme of the assembly was the importance of homework. We explained to our students that we expect them to list the homework, as well as topics covered, for each class during the school day. 


The benefits of homework are;

  • Homework reinforces skills, concepts and information learned in class.

  • Homework prepares students for upcoming class topics.

  • Homework teaches students to work independently and develop self-discipline.

  • Homework encourages students to take initiative and responsibility for completing a task.

  • Homework allows parents to have an active role in their child’s education and helps them to evaluate their child’s progress.

  • Homework activities relate what is learned in school to children’s lives outside of school and helps to connect school learning to the real world.


We ask that you support the school by signing your son’s homework journal every night in order to form good habits towards homework. 


Thank you in anticipation of your support,


Mr.Kieran Sweeney
