Grade 7 to 12 Homework:

We are writing this email to clarify why we assign homework in Grades 7-12 and how it is recorded for student marks. Homework is assigned for practice of lessons received in class. Practice helps reinforce skills learned in class and helps students and teachers identify areas that that are unclear in the student’s learning. Work that is attempted reveals a lot more information to students and teachers when the homework is taken up in class. It can reveal areas of strength and areas that need attention. Students are given the chance in class to state questions they wish for the teacher to review. This provides them with additional lessons and practice of questions they struggled with.

Homework is marked on a complete or incomplete basis. This means that if a student has completed their homework in its entirety by their next class they will receive their homework mark for the day. Students who attempted all but one question will not receive a mark for their homework completion because it was not tried. Students who complete the homework at a later date will not receive a mark or partial marks for the work either as it was not completed on the assigned day. If the students do complete their work at a later date and struggled with a question they are encouraged to go to their teacher during the lunch hour for help.

The key is students must attempt all homework questions to receive their homework mark for the day. Please note that a student’s final mark is 70%-80% from assigned class work and 20%-30% from the exam mark. Homework is an integral part to their final mark.

If you have any other concerns please feel free to contact Julie Alfred the Secondary Vice Principal through email at jalfred@heritageinternationalschool.com or call the school and leave a detailed message with Nirvana Essam the Executive Secretary of the Secondary and we will get back to you as soon as possible. The more information received the easier it to assist you.

We wish everyone a great year!
