Study Tips:

The importance of homework to students’ progress is essential. The giving of homework is a

policy of The Berkeley Institute. In order to assist students in deriving maximum benefit from

their homework, a formal homework system is in place in the school.

Parents should check this book on a regular basis to keep abreast of the homework issued to you.


The parent’s signature is required for the advisory inspection.

Before signing, parents should ensure that all homework has been completed.

If an assignment is not completed,the subject teacher should initial the appropriate column.

Detentions may be given for homework infractions but more importantly marks are deducted for late work.

It is suggested that you set aside sufficient time for homework each night. This should consist of

these approximate times:

S1 = Two hours

S2 = Two hours

S3 = Two to two and one half hours

S4 = Two and a half-Three hours


There is homework every night. Remember that whenever you do not have an assignment due the next day, your home

work is to review.

Homework may include the following:

a) Activities related to class work

b) Completion of written assignments

c) Preparation for work to be covered in subsequent lessons

d) Research for a project

e) Preparation of materials

f) Revision of the work done during the day
