:- There is an expectation at Karumba State School that all students will receive and complete homework. Homework is not new work but work that has already been taught in the classroom and is given to be rehearsed and shared at home with parents. We are aware homework can sometimes be a contentious issue with parents and students. We strongly encourage parents to communicate with teachers about homework. School is a partnership and we welcome your input.
