    In a commitment to making a positive difference, Homebush Boys High School, has recently established the ‘The Breakfast Club’ Program.  This program gives high school students, in areas of greatest need, a filling and healthy breakfast, to get them through the day.  It fuels the body for the rest of the day, ensuring that students can learn to the best of their ability in class.
