At Diamond Creek Primary School we call homework, Home Learning. This is because we believe the tasks provided for children to complete at home are a purposeful extension to the children’s learning, not just more work for them to do.
When it comes to Home learning we endeavour to promote lifelong learning and connect families with what their child is learning at school. Meaningful home learning is a great way to promote real-life problem solving, logical thinking, creativity and imagination. We are also very realistic and believe it is important to have a balance between home learning provided and sufficient time for family and recreation activities.
