Dear Parent/Carer

Year 7 Holiday Homework

As we approach the upcoming break, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the hard work and efforts of our Year 7 students and the investment they have made towards their academic studies in the last few modules.  

The Easter holiday is undoubtedly a well-deserved time for rest and rejuvenation.  It is also important to recognise that this period must also be utilised by students to stay on track with their academic studies and to maintain the continuity of their learning.  As a result, all students have been set compulsory homework tasks to complete in each subject over the Easter break.  

These tasks have been posted onto their Google Classrooms and are also outlined below.  We kindly request your support in reinforcing the significance of completing the assigned homework tasks, which are due in the first week back of module 5.
