Homework & Planner

Homework

At Olive we value the importance of Homework as it serves various educational needs. It serves as an intellectual discipline, establishes study habits, and eases time constraints on the amount of curricular material that can be covered in class, and supplements and reinforces work done in school. In addition, it fosters student initiative, independence, and responsibility and brings home and school closer together.

To help promote the routine of recording and planning homework, students should use the School Planner every day, to check what they have to do and by when it must be completed.

Families can help students (and the school) by:

·         Checking the Planner to see what homework has been given;

·         Providing students with time and space for learning at home;

·         Talking to them about what they are doing;

·         Asking students to explain it to you;

·         Helping and guiding them when needed;

·         Making it part of the daily routine.

 

We encourage students to talk to their families about school work. Students, Form Tutor and parents / carers will check the Planner each week and sign it to confirm that homework and other tasks are completed as required.

Pupil Planner

At Olive Secondary School the school planner provided to all students serves as a very important document. This is not only to be used for students to organise themselves by entering relevant information related to their studies but also to serve as a communication tool between the staff and parents.

It is to help students:

·         Record homework

·         Plan when home-learning can take place

·         Plan time needed for certain tasks

·         Get messages home by noting any newsletter dates

·         Communicate with parents / carers

·         Record in-class and out of class achievements

·         Review progress

·         Set Targets for improvement

·         Collect Special Achievement Awards

·         Be aware of important dates (school trips, exams, special events)

·         Record detentions

 

Students Must:

·         Use it- every lesson of every day and at home each evening;

·         Keep it up to date;

·         You as Parents can/must do the following to successfully utilise the planner;

·         Be sure to check your child's planner every week at least, signing at the end of the week in the space provided;

·         Acknowledge any notes from teachers to you;

·         Be aware of any detentions issued and/or homework given;

 

 

Safeguarding

Every one of you people is a shepherd. And every one is responsible for whatever falls under his responsibility. A man is like a shepherd of his own family, and he is responsible for them."

-Bukhari, Muslim

Child Protection

The following couplet summarises the effect a parent has upon his/her child: The parent is like a mirror, the reflection it gives, the child adopts. If the reflection is good, the child is good. If the reflection is bad, the child is bad. The first and foremost desire of parents is to prepare their child for a bright and successful future.

Thus every parent hopes and wishes that their children be pious with excellent character but this can only be achieved if the correct method towards this goal is adopted and the right environment created from the very beginning

Why Us? Read it Yourself!

  • With a need for an Islam-compliant environment and quality education I arrived at Olive Secondary School in its early days of the year 2008. Olive provided me with the opportunity to study two sets of curriculum, allowing me to develop spiritually/morally and academically. Always being offered a personal concern and effort from the hardworking staff and school members is what has made this truly unique for me. And after 7 years, our journey at Olive comes to an end as students, as we leave with the best years of our life and the most precious of memories. Teaching more than just books, Olive is an outstanding place to learn.
