​​​​​​​​Homework is an important part of every child’s education, but finding time to help children get their homework done can be a challenge for busy families.

Homework Centres will provide a supervised and suitable learning environment in which students can complete their homework before they go home.

To ease the burden on families, the Queensland Government has Homework Centres in 120 state school sites across the state.

Management and operating hours

Homework Centre sessions will be managed by principals, all sessions will be free and held up to 3 hours per week for 30 weeks per year. The sessions will be supervised by teacher aides.

The exact days and times that Homework Centres will operate will be determined by each school in order to meet the needs of the school community.

Eligible students

Any student of a state school with a Homework Centre can attend. Participation is voluntary.

Schools will be responsible for managing registrations for their Homework Centre.

Activities for children at the Homework Centre

Students will be able to complete their homework tasks under the supervision of teacher aides after school. Personalised tuition or academic counselling will not be provided.

Each school will plan their Homework Centre sessions to ensure they consider the age, learning and development needs of the children attending.

A healthy snack will also be provided.

Homework Centres for schools

Principals of state schools with a community need to support families with after school programs were encouraged to nominate their school to operate a Homework Centre.

Regional selection panels determined the locations for the centres, based on local community need.
