  • Professional Learning Report

    On-going professional learning, at Homebush Boys High School, is essential in ensuring that staff is provided with current information, developments and future educational direction. Complementing this, is the teaching and learning process, staff commitment to life-long learning and most importantly, the continual need for further skills development and improvement. As a school, we recognise, value and support the need for opportunities for all staff to be professional committed learners on an in-going manner. In order for this to become a reality, it is essential that opportunities, both in formal and informal professional development activities, be made available. This will ensure that staff, of all levels, develop, share knowledge and expertise, continue their engagement in professional development dialogue and be united in their work towards common teaching and learning goals. As Head Teacher Teaching & Learning, I have had the pleasure of working with many wonderful staff members in my career. Professional growth, in areas such as curriculum, welfare and teacher quality, has been ensured.

  • LOTE Faculty Report - Term 1 2015

    Henry T. Heald stated that “Education in its deepest sense is the improvement of man so that he will be a thinking individual, not afraid of the validity of his conclusions, even though they may deviate from what may be acceptable and safe at the moment.” 1968

    The ultimate goal of education should be to produce analytical citizens who help to shape the environment around them and are not afraid to ask questions or solve problems. I believe that educators should develop in learners, the abilities and skills to empower them to explore and solve problems in the world that they are confronted with. Only then will students come to see education and learning as lifelong processes made up of meaningful experiences.
