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,
Please click here to read a letter from the NT Minister of Education explaining how our school is operating until the end of term. Monday 6 – Thursday 9 April (week 11) has been designated as professional development days for staff to prepare for learning at home (online and hard copy) in Term 2.
As per previous communication home, staff are continuing to prepare some learning for students currently at home. This learning will predominantly be online utilising student laptops, with Year 12 online course development being our highest priority.
Please remind / inform your student to regularly check their ntschools.net email to receive correspondence from teachers.
Any issues in continuing learning at home not underway by mid next week (Wed 1 April), please contact the college on 8958 5000
