Homework and behviour policies

You may download the centre's behaviour for successful learning guidelines (PDF 153KB) . All students who attend the Saturday School of Community Languages are expected to behave in a respectful, responsible and safe manner at all times.

As outlined in our whole school homework policy (PDF 125KB) , homework is an important part of your learning.

The Birrong Boy HS centre is committed to ensuring the best possible learning experience for our students. This will entail the completion of tasks that the students are to submit at the time designated by the class teacher. In the event that homework is not completed, the assistant supervisor may proceed with any or all of the following actions:

  • interview the student
  • send a letter of concern to the home school and parents/carers
  • withdraw the student from class until the homework task is completed. In the event that this option is used, the supervisor will request a parent/caregiver interview to assist with the solution to this issue. This is a last resort and will only be used in the event of persistent non-completion of homework tasks.

In the event that the task is not completed in spite of the student's best efforts, extra assistance, where possible, will be provided to the student concerned.

The purpose of giving homework is to enhance the learning experience of each student. The timely completion of these tasks will greatly assist in the development of all aspects of their language skills.
