  • Cricket - Davidson Shield CHS Knockout

    Homebush BSH played Killarney Heights HS on Thursday 18m February at Hudson Park.
    Captain Lachlan Beattie won the toss and elected to bat on a good wicket. Nikethan and Nivethan Radhahrishnan provided a sound foundation for the innings with an opening partnership of 36, scoring 15 and 12 respectively.
    Killarney Heights bowled tightly and fielded well on a hot day making runs hard to come by. Lachlan Beattie was the mainstay of the innings with a well compiled 32. Lachlan was the last batsman dismissed with Todd Dale (14) the only batsman to provide resistance with most Homebush batsmen surrendering their wicket meekly through poor shot selection. Homebush was dismissed for 111 in thirty two overs from a maximum of 40 overs.

  • Bi Annual Netball Match 2015

    NetballOn Friday 11th of September some Year 12 and Year 10 boys went to Burwood Girls High School to play our biannual netball match. YES NETBALL. The boys always have a great time- we did not win but that is not the point. It is always a hard fought match with the girls giving no quarter and the boys come away with a realisation that netball is a very physically demanding game- new found respect. No backboard and lots of rules make it difficult for us to win, despite our height advantage. We walk away from this with gains no matter the result. We wish the boys and the girls all the very best for their HSC and what lies beyond and hope that they remember this opportunity to step outside of their comfort zone.

  • City2Surf 2013

    Adam Yoon & Ben NguyenPerfect running conditions welcomed several of our students, teachers and other Homebush associates to this year’s City to Surf. Beginning at Hyde Park in Sydney’s CBD, the young men (some not so young) ran the 14km track to the iconic Bondi Beach.

    There was a bit of worry at the start for some as the bag drop off time came and went, leaving some runners with a handful of gear, rather than having it stowed safely in the back of a truck to be transported to Bondi for pick up at the finish. This was soon rectified and the nervous lads waited for the start.

    Down William Street, past the Coke sign and over to the coast, 85000 humans made their way to Bondi in an effort to beat their best time or establish a bench mark for later years. At the 6km mark, Heartbreak Hill loomed. For over 1km the crowd climbs up wards before the course flattens out. However, with legs hurting from this major climb, the organisers placed several smaller hills between the runners and the finish.

  • HBHS Wins ERREA Cup Knock-out Semi-Final

    Wednesday morning started as usual for most students but for the First Grade Football team it started very early, and it was to be a day filled with excitement and anticipation. Coach Mr Scott Belgre had organised the Knock-Out semi-final against Albury for the all-weather astro-turf pitch at Seymour Shaw stadium in the Sutherland Shire so the team and supporters met Mr Khurshed and Mr Carrozza at the school bus at 7AM.

    The game kicked off at 8.45AM and after the first half the score was 0-0. Deserved praise went to the Albury goal keeper who had made at least two extraordinary saves. But the second half went to Homebush and when Nathan Carter scored after 20 minutes of play our defence reamined rock-solid and we closed out the match. A well deserved 1-0 win over a spirited but sporting opposition.

    Mr Belgre was quoted as saying that the "team played a well-structured but expansive game and even under pressure they maintained their shape. I am looking forward to the final and believe I have the boys that could go all the way".
