|Do teachers assign homework to their students?||
|Approximate hours of homework given||
Homework at ipso depends on the age group and takes many forms that range from the classical to authentic experiences: this includes essays, preparation of presentations, preparation and conducting of surveys and research work. However, students are encouraged right from a very early age to create a culture of independent work, which is also expected later. Homework can also be completed during the 'after school activity' time – if support is needed, together with a teacher. For Kindergarten children there is no homework, but we encourage reading and singing at home with the parents.
