As you know, your son has been participating in NAPLAN Online during this and the previous week. Regrettably, there were some connectivity issues that disrupted your child’s experience during testing. Understandably, some students may have been impacted to an extent that affected their performance in the assessment.

The connectivity issues were reported to the national education testing authorities responsible for NAPLAN Online, who have now decided that eligible students will have the opportunity to re-sit the tests on Tuesday 28th May.

In your son’s case, he is able to re-sit the writing test.

Re-sitting the NAPLAN writing test is entirely optional, and your son does not have to participate if you do not wish him to do so. In considering whether your son should re-sit the test, please be aware that only the result of the second test will be recorded as your son’s result for NAPLAN 2019.

Homebush Boys High School, would like to invite you to attend the 10th Annual Ramadan Iftar night on Thursday the 23rd of May 2019.

The event takes place at the School Hall at 4:30pm – 7:00pm and all students and teachers are invited to the event, Muslim and non-Muslim. Students are expected to buy tickets for $20 each and will be required to show their ticket on the night. A various selection of foods on the night will be provided for the students to choose from, and there will also be desserts and drinks available.

Ramadan is the holy month in the Islamic calendar in which people of the Islamic faith fast for approximately 30 days from sunrise to sunset, in which Muslims are not allowed to consume any food or drink. Linguistically Iftar means the breaking of the fast, and it is an Islamic tradition to break it with an odd amount of dates and some water. Ramadan is a time of the year where Muslims try to understand what the poor and needy feel in times of hunger and desperation but more importantly to reconnect to their faith and strengthen their relationship with God Almighty.

Ramadan is a time of reflection, but also a time to enjoy and we hope you will be able to join us for the Iftar night and enjoy your time there.
