It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Homebush Boys High School website. As you explore its pages, either as a prospective student, a prospective parent or as an interested member of the community, I hope you will gain a sense of what a very special school this is; a place that is a dynamic, progressive and vibrant learning community.
The aim of promoting excellence in a caring and supportive environment underpins the school culture of Homebush Boys High School. This culture is grounded in the concept that all of our students have two basic rights at our school: the right to learn and the right to safety. Our curriculum and welfare procedures have been developed (and are being continually evaluated by the school community) to ensure these rights and the corresponding responsibilities. We also place great value on helping our students to develop those skills necessary for them to become independent life-long learners and to see themselves as part of and contributing to their local community.
Our school is a dynamic learning community committed to providing a rich, safe and enjoyable educational environment. We have a harmonious multicultural population and our parent and community support is outstanding.
We offer a comprehensive and challenging curriculum which caters to the needs and interests of our students. Our team of experienced and dedicated teachers focuses upon quality teaching with a particular emphasis upon strategies to address the needs of extending the learning opportunities for students in a boys' school context.
Since its foundation in 1936, our school has gained a fine reputation for providing quality education for boys,
I am very proud to be leading Homebush Boys High School. Thank you for showing an interest in our school and I look forward to personally welcoming you at some time in the not too distant future.
