 Angels Challenges

The Guardian Angels alternative to homework 

ABOUT ANGELS CHALLENGES

Our school has a ‘no homework’ policy. Instead, at Guardian Angels we encourage all our pupils to take on a number of challenges that we will acknowledge and recognise at school. These are called Angels Challenges in Years 3 to 6 and Junior Angels Challenges in Prep to Year 2.

Growing evidence shows that children benefit more from being involved in family-related and social activities after school. The Angels Challenges program picks up on this theme and offers children a means to record and report on the huge variety of activities they are involved in during and outside school time.

A NOTE TO PARENTS

Parents are reminded that the challenges are for the children – not the parents.

 

They are designed so students can work towards achieving a goal.  Your judgment of your child’s ability will determine the degree of difficulty and a reasonable but challenging amount of learning needs to occur.  So tasks should challenge the child’s ability, yet be achievable.

These challenges are designed for children to have a lot of positive experiences that help others while building on their knowledge, general knowledge, skills and creativity.

If you are stuck, please see your child’s teacher for some suggestions.

Parents – enjoy guiding your children to challenge themselves.
