  • 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.

  • White Ribbon Day

Thank you to Sydney FC, Western Sydney Wanderers, A-League Referees, Parramatta Eels, Wests Tigers, Sydney Kings, Australian Cricket Teams, Schaefer Family, Strathfield Council, Mayor of Strathfield, State and Federal MPs and Police Force, for your support and sporting item donations, regarding this community event.

  • 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.

  • Pink Ribbon Day

    About 15,000 women across the nation are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.

    Homebush Boys High School continued, on the 23 October, 2015, with its strong donation tradition as part of a Pink Ribbon fund-raiser and cancer awareness day.

    Pink Ribbon Day is an annual event run by the Cancer Council which aims to raise funds and awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers.

    Individual personnel dressed in pink to support the Pink Ribbon Day initiative and raise funds for breast and gynaecological cancer. Fashion police were sent out to look for best dressed staff members on the day. Staff and students raised over $800.00 for such a worthy cause. Many shared stories of the need for early detection and support mechanisms that are available. Whole school personnel also engaged in practices of reflection, remembering loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer.
