Homework Expectations and Homework Clubs

Our school encourages independent learning through homework that promotes individual interests, problem solving skills, literacy and numeracy skills.

Homework is an essential part of the learning process. It provides students with the opportunity to practice, reinforce or apply newly acquired skills and knowledge and to learn the skills of independent study. It also fosters initiative, responsibility and self-discipline.

Parents can support their children by ensuring that there is a workspace available which is quiet and equipped; setting aside time every day for doing homework; providing guidance and support but not answers; assisting with setting priorities; and praising and rewarding effort and persistence.

Roma Mitchell Secondary College strongly recommends that students do not have a mobile phone nearby when completing homework or study. These devices should be completely turned off and put away (put in another room is preferred). Any electronic functions that may be needed to help complete homework or study can be accessed via a laptop. In addition, social media sites and other potential distractions on the laptop should be blocked where possible.

Join our Homework Clubs

At Roma Mitchell Secondary College we provide a supportive Homework Club.

Our homework club has been a successful program with many students attending, but this has only been due to the caring, supportive and committed staff who volunteer their time, knowledge, and expertise to support our students.

This year it will offered on the Co-Ed side of our Library on Tuesday & Thursday afternoons, until 4.30 pm.

Our Homework Club provides a safe space for students to complete their learning and build positive relationships with teachers.


 Homework Club provides:

  • A safe, quiet, and calm space to concentrate and complete work
  • A supportive environment
  • One-to-one or small-group support
  • A chance to share knowledge
  • An opportunity to build relationships, skills, and knowledge
  • An opportunity to develop good work habits and a positive attitude and disposition towards learning
  • The chance to develop skills involved in becoming an independent learner.
