Optimus believes that each student should spend some time after the school hours in independent study, either at the school prep hour or at home.
We believe that such an effort
will help to develop sound independent
will reinforce learning through further practice.
Must be appropriate to the age, ability and developmental stage of the individual student and should be stimulating, interesting and fun to do.
Some sort of work will be assigned for all students. It will be made into a meaningful educational device based on quality assignments rather than quantity.
Week and Term boarders are given sufficient time and necessary guidance to do these during the evening prep hours.
Parents of Day Boarders should earmark time for independent study. The school encourages the parents to help their children with some difficult work (but please do not do it yourself) and advise the teacher if the child has any difficulty with homework
During holidays also some sort of academic work, usually in the form of Projects will be set for the students.
