Homework is a vital part of student learning at Tararua College. It should be used to establish self-discipline and independent work habits as well as reinforcing Curriculum delivery. All staff are expected to set homework and monitor its completion - all students are to do homework. Homework set should be at a level appropriate to the ability of the individual student and must be written into each student's logbook.
The amount of homework in total should be as follows:
Year 9 - one hour per night.
Year 10 - one and a half hours per night.
Years 11 to 13 - two hours per night.
This is a guide and represents a minimum level. Senior classes especially will require more than this from time to time.
