Commencing Term 3 2017 Homebush Boys High School is introducing a Technology Policy to provide students, staff and parents with clear guidelines regarding the safe and appropriate use of technology at School.

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is now a compulsory policy at Homebush Boys High School. All students are required to bring their devices charged and ready for use every day.
