The first ceremony for 2014 kicked off on a fine March evening attended by keen residents eagerly awaiting the moment they can call themselves Australian citizens. It was lovely to see how proud the families were as they celebrate together waving their Australian flags and congratulating each other on becoming citizens of our community.

Homebush Boys was represented by Zubin Jacon, Darren Truong and Sohaib Ansari who did a great job attending to the food preparation and service. Thanks Ms Effie Bonis for coordinating the prefects and thanks parents who did a wonderful job supplying food or money for the event.

Thank you boys for doing such a fine job at this formal event. Homebush Boys prides itself on our students and their good behaviour when representing the school especially and we look forward to continuing this example at the following three ceremonies in 2014.

The P & C has been very busy in 2013. We held our first meeting and our AGM on the 26th March 2013 and our new P & C Executive members were elected. We have held meetings most months since then and enjoyed listening to guests speaking on a variety of topics including Career pathways, Technology at HBHS and Learner Support. These meetings also give parents a chance to be heard about topics and issues that they are interested in. YOU get a say and your say can make changes at our school to the benefit our our students and community.
Mr Jurd and one or both of our Deputy Principals Ms Dwyer and Mr Khurshed are usually in attendance and they welcome your opinions and contributions so come along and see what the P & C does for the school and see what you can do as well.

The final Citizenship Ceremony was held on 8th November 2012 at the Strathfield Council Town Hall and was attended by the new 2013 Year 12 Prefects Nayan Bhathela, Ibrahim Saker, Leandros Pandoulis and Cameron Murray.

Chatty and exuberant, the boys did a great job assisting in the preparation and presentation of the food for the ceremony which was a very busy affair. The boys were complimented on their good manners and the new citizens complimented our school for their assistance in this event. The Mayor of Strathfield Mr Gulian Vaccari commented that the boys had done a 'great job' as well.

The first Citizenship Ceremony for the year was held on Thursday 11th April 2013 and attended by 120 new citizens and their families. Guest speaker for the evening was Australian novelist, playwright, author and 'Australian Living Treasure' Mr Thomas Keneally who incidentally was educated just around the corner at St Pats about 65 years ago?

Homebush Boys was represented by three very happy and helpful seniors, namely Prefects Serge Houhlias and Rowan Castro and SRC President Ayman Hill. They prepared and presented an array of mouthwatering dishes supplied by a wonderful volunteer group of parents. Without the support of parents at the school we would not be able to continue this fundraising venture which raises $2000 annually for the P & C to distribute throughout the school. Our thanks to all those parents who supply food or a monetary donation for the purchase of food and a big thank you to Prefect Coordinator Ms Jenelle Horiatopoulos for her continued support organising the student helpers and thank you to Laura Donahue in the school office who collects and safe guards the donations. We couldn't run this event  without these wonderful ladies.

If you would like to volunteer by supplying a plate of finger food or a monetary donation for the purchase of food, please call Laura on phone: 9764 3611 and leave your details.

The third ceremony for 2013 was officiated by the General Manager of Strathfield Council Mr David Backhouse and guests included Federal MP for Watson The Hon Mr Tony Burke and Federal MP for Reid The Hon Mr John Murphy together wirth State MP for Strathfield Mr Charles Casuscelli. Tonight was an especially significant evening with the highly anticipated Federal elections just a few days away.

The supper supplied by the parents of the school was absolutely outstanding, with everything on offer from a homemade cake decorated with fresh flowers, raspberry and choc chip muffins to chocolate and almond slice, bread and butter mini puddings, banana cakes, sandwiches, greek crescent biscuits and spicy savouries just to mention a few. We also received a generous donation of money from parents of which we spent on other food items to compliment what was already received. Everything was eaten and truly appreciated by the new Citizens to our community. Thank you once again for your support parents of Homebush Boys.

Thank you to the three prefects who assisted on the night, namely Charlie Brian (who makes his second appearance this year!), Alexei Feofiloff and Andrew Chen. You did a marvellous job helping to make the running of the event so smooth and easy. And many thanks to Ms Horiatopoulos who we say a very big thank you to for your time in supervising the boys at this event.

Councillor Gulian Vaccari, Mayor of Strathfield welcomed the official party and candidates to the evening's event where candidates pledge their commitment to Australia and become the newest citizens to our community.

The event was catered by parents of Homebush Boys who once again gave generously a mouthwatering selection of yummy treats including that Australian classic the Lamington! Four senior boys assisted by serving refreshments on the night. These were Dylan Kang, Charlie Brian, Peter Totidis and Henry Tran. Thanks boys! You did a great job representing our school. And a big thank you to the parents who donated a plate of food or a monetary donation. As always, we couldn't do with you.
