Home Learning

Article 28. Every child has the right to an education. 

Home Learning is an integral part of teaching and learning, extending learning opportunities beyond the classroom is essential for student’s progress and engagement. Home learning provides a rich array of experiences to support independence and a lifelong love of learning.
