Raffles Institution Holiday Homework sign now

To the staff of Raffles Institution

The word Holiday is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as an Extend period of recreation; a break from work. This thus makes the term holiday homework an oxymoron.

Students, be it from any school in the world, need their rest.

During the June Holidays, to give an example, the students from a certain class were given the following assignments to do over the 4 weeks.

A Chinese book review
A Chinese project, consisting of a choice between 3 options,
A Mathematics assignment about logarithms
An English Social Advocacy project
An English ERP assignment.
A Biology assignment
RE assignments

These are only the assignments; other miscellaneous pieces of work are not included in this list, as they may vary from class to class. These assignments are from a class that takes Triple Science and History, the science assignments may vary from class to class.

Even at the end of year, the Chinese department, in particular, will often assign work to be handed up the next year. The end of year holiday, in my opinion, is supposed to be left for students to rest, and yet it is violated by assignments.

As said above, the term holiday is supposed to mean a rest from work; this is certainly not the case in Raffles.

Admittedly, there has to be a slight share of work during the holidays, except for the end-of-year holidays, so we take a more moderate stance in just petitioning for the amount of work to be reduced.

We hope to achieve the following goals

1. The reduction of holiday homework
2. The creation of a school policy that limits the amount of holiday homework
3. The complete elimination of holiday homework during the end of year holiday.

We do hope that you will take our suggestion into consideration .
