 Depot Hill State School homework policy states that homework is not compulsory. We understand that for some families with busy lives, homework adds an unnecessary burden. Other families enjoy the connection which the homework provides with their child’s learning and classroom activities. Students whose families choose not to take part in homework are not penalised but we do reward those children who choose to do homework with a Fun Monday Lunchtime reward. 
 We are streamlining our approach to homework and  preventing the waste of paper which occurs when homework sheets are given to students who do not intend to do the homework. Please discuss with your child whether you would like them to have homework or not. If your family decides that you would like your children to receive homework, please complete a homework form and return to school.
If your family decides that you do not require homework, we will no longer hand out homework sheets/folders to these students. Please contact the office if you would like further clarification around this policy.
