Responsibilities of Parties
Teachers are required to:
• Ensure that each student is issued with a subject Assessment Plan by Week 4 of each course outlining formative and summative assessments appropriate to the subject and year level
• Ensure that all summative assessments are provided in writing to students with due date, task requirements, word length, weighting and assessment criteria clearly indicated
• Negotiate with students if homework cannot be completed by the due date (due to ill health, family/personal problems, other extraordinary commitments and/or extenuating circumstances)
• Explain to students the consequences of not completing homework on time and if appropriate impose and supervise catch-up sessions/detentions for students who do not comply
• Contact a parent/guardian by telephone or in writing when a student repeatedly fails to complete homework and each time a summative assessment task is not completed by the due date.
Students are required to:
• Allocate appropriate time to undertake personal study and complete all homework as set course.
• Independently and regularly revise work covered in class.
• Negotiate prior to the due date with each teacher if tasks cannot be completed by the due date.
Students should also:
• Learn to plan their work taking into account family, sporting, cultural and/or employment commitments and social activities as well as the commitment required for assessment timelines.
• Recognise that some subjects have more homework demands than others but that one subject should not receive so much time that others are neglected.
• Discuss any problems they have with homework or study plans with an appropriate person (e.g. parents, Mentors, subject teachers, Career Advisers, Managers, an Assistant Principal and / or the Principal).
Parents are asked to support the College by:
• Facilitating a student’s sound study habits.
• Providing notice to a subject teacher (by telephone, email or note) of any reason's for a student’s homework not being completed by the due date.
Dear parents & community members,
We hope you and your family continue to be well. Students, staff and families are to be congratulated on their resiliency and flexibility in continuing student learning, either through attendance at school or following our learning at home arrangements over the last few weeks.
With there being no recorded cases of community transmission of the Coronavirus in the NT, we will be transitioning back to face to face teaching and learning classes for all year levels at the beginning of next week.
From the start of Week 2 Term 2 - Monday 27 April 2020, all Year 10 – 12 classes will recommence face to face lessons at their usual scheduled lesson times. Some room changes will be required and some practical learning activities will not occur or be modified.
We encourage all students to attend in person and participate in all classes, however we also understand that some families will want their children to remain home. Students staying at home should continue to maintain regular contact with their teachers and College staff. This will assist them to progress their learning and not fall behind in their studies. Parents are requested to notify the College of students staying at home via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, text message: 0427 135 122 or phone: 8958 5000, as per usual student attendance / absentee procedures.
