Homework and Supervised Study

It is essential that students develop the habit of regular effective study. Teachers will give students guidance on how to prepare for examinations within each subject area. From first to sixth year, it is important that care and attention is given to ensuring that homework is completed and on time.

In St. Raphaela’s, we strive to support the quality of the education we offer. One of the ways in which we do this is by offering supervised Study. We believe that supervised study can be very advantageous towards students achieving their academic potential. It can also contribute significantly towards giving students a structure which can help them progress further in their studies.

Supervised Study is available in the school each day from 3.40 p.m. to 6. 55 p.m, and on Saturday mornings. All students from second, third, fifth and sixth year may participate in the study sessions. A fee is payable for this service and additional information is available from the school office, or by contacting the study coordinator.

The school believes that study is an exercise in self-discipline, which must be developed. It involves both written and oral work. It is essential that students develop the habit of study.

First Year students should spend about an hour and a half per day on homework and study, and increasing each year to about three hours for senior students.
