Our Purpose

Homebush Boys High School is a harmonious and supportive environment in which each student is allowed and encouraged to develop his individual academic, personal, social and physical potential.

We recognize the value of our cultural diversity, which enables students to develop tolerance, awareness and pride as citizens of our community.

We have a talented and committed staff working together to create a caring atmosphere for student well-being. Excellent academic and sporting traditions have been maintained. Outstanding citizens and community leaders have been developed.

Our School

Homebush Boys High School is a progressive secondary school valuing excellence in the classroom, on the sporting field and in all cooperative community endeavors. We recognize the importance of the partnership between parents, teachers and students and see it as the key to producing young men who are both prepared for their vocations and responsible for the welfare of their community environment.

Our Welfare

Our Welfare approach places responsibility on the individual for his own actions. The opportunity exists for boys to fulfil leadership, academic, sporting and community roles. Time is allocated in the curriculum to address the social issues of tolerance, self-esteem and community concerns.

Our Sporting Traditions

The emphasis in the delivery of the sports program is the development of skills and the provision of the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sports. The school competes on an interschool basis as a number of the North West Metropolitan Zone of the Combined High Schools Sporting association. Both summer and winter competitions are conducted in four page groupings. In addition, students may select from a variety of non-competitive recreational sports.

These activities are either school base or utilize facilities from the local community. Many students have attained representation at Zone, Regional, State and National level.
