Healthy and supportive school programs contribute to the health and wellbeing of children.  Students miss breakfast for a variety of social and economic reasons, but the result is always the same:  a lack of energy and concentration in the classrooms, leading to a less than optimum performance; nutrition and health issues. 

In a commitment to making a positive difference, Homebush Boys High School, has recently established the ‘The Breakfast Club’ Program.  This program gives high school students, in areas of greatest need, a filling and healthy breakfast, to get them through the day.  It fuels the body for the rest of the day, ensuring that students can learn to the best of their ability in class. 

Where: Room 66

When: Thursday Mornings - 7:45am-8:30am

This year volunteers are hard at work to bring you the best brekky ever!

So come along to enjoy a hearty breakfast!

The camp at Fitzroy Falls was an amazing experience for not only the new Year 7 students but also for the staff. This was the first time the school camped at this site and the students were fortunate to have new tents when camping out at night. They enjoyed the wonderful activities that were on offer including abseiling, archery, camping out and damper making, mountain bike riding, archery, the giant swing, the Koori experience just to name a few.

 The Year 12 leaders were very mature and outstanding in their efforts to support students and staff throughout the camp experience. A big thank you to all the students.
I would like to thank the fantastic staff who attended and completed most, if not all, the activities with the students. Firstly thanks to Sharon Cuneen for organising the camp, John Kennedy, Jon Sculthorpe, Lara Hasham, Thomas Lee, Emily Yong, Kate Crosby, Nina Sing, Tham Sivasothy, Yasmine Manzalji, Michelle Countinho, Michael O’Connell and Michael Talarico. We all had a tiring but fulfilling camp experience.
 

All the photos from the Year 7 Camp have been uploaded onto the School's Facebook Page
