The Bushy Boys celebrated  Multicultural Day on the 23rd August 2013 under warm but windy conditions. Setting up the displays of country flags under the arches was an interesting exercise for the boys with several countries doing their very best to break free and fly away.

The SRC boys and other helpers set up tables and laid them with tempting treats from many parts of the world. The delicious food supplied by parents of the school and the hospitality department consisted of things like yummy butter chicken, lasagne, samosas, noodles, good old Aussie 'snags' in a roll, lamingtons, gelato, Greek crescent biscuits and much more..

Friday 13 September was a day to remember. Dicko and Sarah brought the community together for a great community event. Not only did the students, staff and parents share an outstanding barbecue courtesy of IGA, but one of our favourite sons, test cricketer, Mitchell Starc joined us to chat with the students and staff, as well he signed countless shirts, cricket bats, balls, and iPods for the adoring fans.

2UE also brought their targeted charity, the Guide Dogs along with some very cute puppies and Apprentice Power were there in force to guide our students in pathways to a trade career. One of the parents won $954 in a raffle draw just for attending.

Homebush Drum Band and Orchestra showed their talents and if you missed the day catch up by following the blog at 2UE. Just click HERE.

Thanks to all involved.

John Coates was due to face Sami Moudallah in the ballot for vice-president of the International Olympic Committee, scheduled for Wednesday (AEST) but Moudallah withdrew his candidacy on Tuesday. Coates, 63, is the president of the Australian Olympic Committee who joined the IOC in 2001 after playing a key role in the bid and staging of the Sydney 2000 Olympics. A former rower, he has been involved in Australia's Olympic Games teams since Montreal in 1976. Coates is also the president of the Court of Arbritration for Sport (CAS).  

Born in Sydney, the son of a solicitor, John Coates was brought up in the Sydney suburb of Strathfield. He attended Homebush BHS. He was keen on sports at school, captaining a representative cricket XI. Later he took up rowing when the school introduced the sport in 1966, coxing the school's boats to victories over more experienced crews from established rowing schools at several regattas. John Coates embraced the traditions established by Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the modern olympics. John believed in participation and he found Homebush allowed him to strive for excellence in sport and also in his academic endeavours.

After leaving school he studied at the University of Sydney, and qualified as a solicitor. This legal background has enabled him to become one of the most successful sports administrators in the world.

All the best to John Coates, an old 'bushy boy'.
