All girls complete supervised homework, or prep, from Monday to Thursday evenings and on Sunday mornings.
For all boarders there are specific, supervised study periods during which girls can work without interruption. From Monday to Thursday evening Students in Years 5 to 10 complete their nightly prep in the Greta Centre and classrooms, while girls in Years 11 and 12 study in their rooms.
All girls have access to a member of the teaching staff during every period of prep. To support strong study habits and routines, there is an additional prep session for boarders on Sunday morning.
In order to make the most of the study time available, boarders need to be punctual and organised, bringing only what is needed to prep. During Prep time boarders remain at their desks enabling them to maintain focus and concentration, and be respectful in avoiding to disturb others. Girls can seek permission from supervising staff to undertake group work during this time.
The specific times set aside for Prep act only as a minimum guide and many boarders will want, or need, to do extra work or study. This is supported through the tutorial sessions held in the Day School and through Homework Help sessions available in the Learning Enhancement Centre.
