Parents are asked to check

  • that their child has completed all homework given by the teacher – written work, oral work and reading.
  • that their child’s Homework Journal has been signed.
  • that their child has all he needs for the school day – lunch, pencils, copies etc.

Recommended Time Allocation

Junior and Senior Infants:     No formal homework

First and Second Class:           30 Minutes

Third and Fourth Class:          45 Minutes

Fifth and Sixth Class:               1 Hour 

The recommended times are guidelines. If you are unsure about any aspect of the homework routine or if your child regularly exceeds the recommended times and is making a genuine effort, you are welcome to make an appointment to discuss the matter with the class teacher.

Incomplete Homework

An explanation, written or oral, should be presented if a child’s homework has not been completed.

Homework Club

Homework Club is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2.30-3.30p.m. for 3rd to 6th class and from 2:30-3:00 for 1st and 2nd class.  It is supervised by a teacher. Students receive all the help and support they require in addition to being encouraged to work independently. We have THREE clubs in operation, one for 1st, 2nd and seniors.
