On Friday the 16th June, 2017, thirteen students from Year 12 chemistry class took part in the prestigious RACI Titration Competition held at University of Sydney. Ms Catalano, the teacher in-charge prepared these students for the competition and had put in a huge effort working even after school hours.

There were 32 teams from 12 different schools in Sydney who took part in this competition. I can say this with great pride that Homebush Boys High School secured 6th position in the competition.

Huge congratulations to all the participants and Ms Catalano. We are certainly looking forward to our continued participation next year as well.

Concord Comets Baseball Club is a local community Baseball club. It is run by parent volunteers to provide kids in our local area with the opportunity to play Baseball.

The physical and social benefits of playing sport are well documented. Playing Baseball is a good way to develop hand-eye coordination, quick thinking and reaction skills.
