Weekly work

Weekly exercises begun in class are to be completed in your own time and submitted to the office by 12:00 the following Tuesday.

The purpose of these exercises is to prepare for the assessments and examination(s); you do not need to fill out a cover sheet for them because they do not carry any marks.
