Home study assists students to establish effective work habits outside of the normal school day. Home study at Damascus College includes formal homework, long term assessment tasks set by class teachers and informal study in which students will revise, read, etc. The establishment of organisational skills, which allow for all aspects of a student’s life to be balanced, is integral to achieving positive outcomes. It is expected that all students use the College diary to record and manage home study.

YEAR 7: 1-1¼ hrs per night on 4 nights
