11 September 2017 Zaki, Ibrahim, Levi | News | Year 12  

It has been an absolute privilege representing Homebush Boys High School as the School Captain for 2017, along with my Vice Captain, Ibrahim Taha and my Senior Prefect, Levi Anderson Foster and the entire prefect body. Although we faced many challenges, our tireless hard work has seen us achieve our objectives and have a successful year.

The prefects worked co-operatively with the “Bushy Boy Awards” scheme led by Mr Elaro, to reward students who pick up ten pieces of litter. This has been successful so far, and we hope future prefect bodies will uphold this initiative. We spoke weekly at Friday assembly suggesting ways in which we as students could respect the local environment, teaching staff and our fellow “Bushy Boys”. Furthermore, we wanted to increase the level of community participation and involvement of students. Our “Kickball competition” initiative engaged year 7’s to compete with one another in kickball games during lunch times, which was administered by the prefects.
