Foundation Catholic Education St. Maarten recognizes regular, purposeful homework as an essential component of the instructional process in all Catholic schools. Homework is an integral factor in fostering the academic achievement of students and in extending school activities into the home and the community.
Regular homework provides opportunities for developmental practice, drill, the application of skills already learned, the development of independent study skills, enrichment activities, and self-discipline. Homework should provide reinforcement and extension of class instruction, and should serve as a basis for further study and preparation for future class assignments.
In light of the major purposes for homework, it is not to be assigned as punishment for students for disciplinary reasons.
No homework will be given in groups one and two.
