RGHS Homework Centre
A free homework centre operates in the school library on Monday and Thursday from 3.30- 5.00. This centre is supervised by volunteer RGHS teachers and university student tutors who are ex-students of RGHS.
The aims of the Homework Centre are to :
provide access to library resources for students after school hours under supervision
provide access to students who do not have computers and /or internet at home
provide guidance/opportunities to students who have difficulties completing homework at home
We monitor each student's progress and provide additional learning support if this is required.
Our school uses learning programs and specialised staff where needed and we work in partnership with parents and carers to assist students who have special learning needs.
