Homework at O’Loughlin Catholic College involves a partnership in learning with students, teachers and parents/caregivers.
It allows for the practising, extending and consolidating of work studied in class, encourages students to be self-motivated and to take responsibility for their own learning and creates independent and lifelong learners. Students are encouraged to take full responsibility for their own homework. Formal homework schedules are introduced at Year 7 when students are expected to complete projects and assignments. There is a gradual increase in the volume and degree of difficulty of homework as students progress through the College.
O’Loughlin Catholic College supports this partnership by offering a Homework Centre.
The Homework Centre runs from 3-4pm, Monday through Wednesday. Generally it begins in Week 2 of each Term and concludes in Week 9. It is staffed by various teachers and support staff who offer assistance to all students in attendance.
