bullet

These times are only suggestions. The amount of time really depends on the individual, some students have a greater work ethic during instructional time and may not need to spend the time after hours reviewing work, especially in years 8, 9 and 10. When a subject teacher sets homework there is an expectation that the work is completed and ready for their next lesson.
