  • Reminder to School Opal Users

    One of the more significant changes created by the recent introduction of the School Opal card is the need for students to tap on and off when traveling to and from school.

    Opal data gathered by tapping on and off is used to determine demand for bus services. If students don’t tap on and tap off, services may be cancelled due the lack of recorded patronage.

    Students are reminded that tapping on and off at the beginning and end of each trip is one of the conditions of using a School Opal card.

    Your assistance helps us ensure we are able to provide the appropriate level of service to students.

  • Multicultural Day - 3rd June

    Our Multicultural Day is fast approaching. It’s on Friday 3rd June.
    This is a special day at Homebush Boys school where our staff and students get an opportunity to showcase who we are. We believe that it is our cultural differences that make us strong, as there is a collective strength in the differences between us and there is comfort where it overlaps, because we are all aware that we are all the same beneath our skin.

    All parents and families of students are cordially invited to our school on Friday 3rd June to come and soak in the festive atmosphere.
    Please support our students’ skills and passion to display multiculturalism.
    The day starts with a special assembly at 8.50 am. This is followed by performances in the hall and we also have a multicultural mini food fair during lunch time on the Western grass.
    Parents are invited to watch the performances and contribute their services to help us celebrate this special day.

     There are opportunities:

    • to help with making and serving of cultural food
    • to help with decorations
    • to help with cultural entertainment /performances

    Any queries: Please call the school on 97643611

  • Harmony Day

    Last term at our school assembly we had Ms Victoria Phillips give a talk about Harmony Day and what is actually meant by the word harmony. Below is part of her presentation on that day.

     “There is only one race and that is the Human race."

    The central message for Harmony Day is that ‘everyone belongs’, reinforcing the importance of inclusiveness for all Australians. This day also coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

    For a more harmonious society we need to focus on ourselves, our own inner world and nurture it, so that we can be the best person we can possibly be and contribute in best possible manner to this world of ours.

    We are not separate from each other, wellbeing comes from being connected and engaged, we move in a web of relationships and interests. We are totally interrelated and our actions have consequences.

  • Breakfast Club 2015

    Breakfast ClubWhat is it?
    The Breakfast Club is a school initiative which commenced 4 years ago. It was initiated by some of our former peers who created this wonderful program with the intent of providing breakfast for those who don’t have a chance to eat anything at home.

    Fawad Faheem and I, started attending the club as we felt the need to assist and contribute our part to the greater good of Homebush Boys’ High students. Initially it was a bit daunting being the youngest and most inexperienced members on board. 

  • Cybersafety Presentations at Homebush Boys

    HandcuffsIn December 2015 the police Liaison Officer Senior Constable Dean Perkins with Mr Sheath delivered a series of presentations on being Safe On-Line to Yrs. 7, 8 & 9. The boys were very engaged and enjoyed the videos and the direct input from the NSW Police.

    The content consisted of cyberbullying, sexting, and what could happen to those who are victims or perpetrators.

    Senior Constable Dean Perkins also enjoyed socialising with the boys at recess where he showed them how handcuffs worked.

  • Transport - Opal Card

    As of Monday 2 November 2015 Transport NSW introduced the new School Opal Card. Just like current paper travel passes, the School Opal card gives eligible students free travel to and from school on school days. However, the School Opal card makes travel simpler, because now students don’t need multiple application forms and passes if they use different transport operators within the Opal network.
    Students with school travel passes this year will not need to apply for a School Opal card unless they are changing schools, their home address or moving from year 6 into year 7.


    The application can be found at 
    https://apps.transport.nsw.gov.au/ssts/howToApply

    The School does not have application forms, you need to download the application form, fill it out, sign and return to the school office.
