It was with a heavy heart that we had our last day of Tennis for Wednesday sport at Powel Creek Tennis Courts as we will be moving on to Summer sport next week. We gave Brett, our coach, a thank you card for all his hard work and effort with the group this semester. He organised regular competative games such as "Hot Shot" and "First to 21" which the students enjoyed immensely. His enthusiasm and encouragement on the court also meant that everybody's tennis game improved, too. We look forward to the next time we can play under his tutelage.

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.
