We’re celebrating Australian Business Week during Week 8, Term 4. The program involves a group of Year 10 students in a business simulation program over a one week period. This year, we’re running the ABW program in conjunction with Strathfield Girls High School. Various parts of the program will be held at: Strathfield Girls High School. The program will be held in Week 8, Term 4: Monday 28th Nov to Friday 2nd Dec 2016. Please note that due to limited space available at Strathfield Girls High School’s hall, only 50 boys from Homebush Boys High School can participate in the program.

The ABW program is designed to encourage independent and cooperative learning skills, and to develop an enterprise mindset prior to proceeding to further study or entering the workforce. It exposes students to coping with deadlines and developing effective time management, both major issues that impact on students in the Preliminary and HSC years of high school as well as in the workplace.

The future of Australia rests in the hands of its young people, and one student showing an interest in shaping Australia’s future is our year 8 student Bassam Maaliki. Bassam has been accepted into the New South Wales Junior Parliament for 2016, an amazing accomplishment that will allow him to represent his community with pride. Part of this initiative will involve him spending a week, talking with like-minded students from across NSW before spending two days debating on particular issues before members of parliament.

Bassam will be working alongside 9 other students in the Multicultural Committee, discussing ideas, issues and solutions to problems that have been identified in their communities. This is an excellent opportunity to build skills in leadership and public speaking and learn a number of other skills that will allow Bassam to demonstrate his drive to improve his community and affect the future direction of NSW.

Homebush Boys High School congratulates Bassam for the work he has done so far in being accepted into this lucrative program and wishes him all the best as he works through the program in the upcoming weeks.

This year in Year 9 Graphics Technology we have been focusing on the software program Adobe Photoshop. Our teacher Ms Dorman, taught us a number of skills and techniques which enabled us to create simple two dimensional logos. We did several projects over the period of two terms where we learnt about the skills needed for the Graphic Design Industry. Expanding on these skills we then learnt how to animate our logos. We applied these techniques to the Homebush Boys High School logo and William Ma, Jia Huang and Usman Hanif’s animated logos were selected from the entire class to be featured on the school website! In conclusion, in the Year 9 Graphics Technology course we were able to learn essential animations skills required for the graphics industry.
