Care Centre

Service offered

Every Care Centre child must report to the Care Centre immediately after school ends to have their names ticked off on the Register.

Homework Policy

  1. We provide the children with 1½ hours of supervised homework time from Monday to Thursday. We do our utmost to ensure that they understand and do their homework.

It is however not our sole responsibility to see that the homework is done.

Please note that No Homework is done on Friday, this is our Free Play Day to refresh the mind.

  1. Stationery such as: Dictionaries; Scissors; Sharpeners need not be bought every year.
  2. Also the same Dictionary that your child uses at school is the same one that should be used at After Care.
  3. The children also need to take responsibility for their own homework and it is compulsory that all learners report to the classroom to complete their homework or study during that time because that is what they are brought to the Care Centre for.
  4. Should homework not be completed during this time they are required to report directly to the ‘late homework class’ to finish their homework if it is incomplete after the standard homework class has ended at 15h45.
  5. The late homework class is also supervised by a teacher who can assist them in completing their tasks. Late Homework, starts after Snack Time at 16h00 untill around 16h30.
  6. In the same respect parents too need to share the responsibility and monitor that homework has actually been completed, that the diary has been signed and that the children have additional time at home to study for their tests and exams.
  7. Parents are also responsible to check the homework diary for any messages from the teacher, as well as to monitor their child’s merits and demerits.
  8. Homework is a combined effort of all the parties involved and the Care Centre cannot be held solely responsible for demerits for poorly done work, incomplete homework and/or poor test results.
  9. At the Care Centre, our aim is to see all our Care Centre children excelling both academically as well as on the sporting field.
  10. We appeal to every Care Centre parent to please check & revise homework with your child every night to ensure that all the work is completed & that any work that has fallen behind is caught up & is clearly understood.
  11. You are welcome to communicate directly with any of the Care Centre ladies if there is any matter that you would like us to address to do with your child’s homework.
  12. Grades 4-7: Please keep your dictionaries in your lockers, so you can use it both at School & after Care. Intersen Phase must have and utilise Highlighters & Colour Pens when making study notes.
  13. No Calculators allowed at After Care during Homework Time.(unless stated in the homework)
