In light of the COVID restrictions, Homebush Boys High School will be conducting Year 11 Parent and Teacher Interviews via telephone.

The Telephone Interviews have been scheduled for Thursday 5 November 2020 from 3.15pm to 6.15pm.

Your son’s Yearly Report is currently being finalised and is scheduled to be available on the Parent Portal from Friday 30 October. The Parent Portal can be accessed through the school website. To log in, you will be asked to enter your ID code. This is the code that was emailed to your nominated email account last year. Once you have logged in, click on the link that says Year 11 Yearly Reports. Further instructions are available on the school’s website.

Students are required to make subject teacher bookings via Moodle (through the school website) using login details – “General” – “Parent & Teacher’s Interview” or by using the link below:

This is an opportunity for Parents to discuss how their son is progressing in his schooling. The booking system consists of a 5 minute meeting per parent per student basis. The onus is on the student to make the necessary bookings and the Parent to ensure that this occurs.

Attached to this letter is a step-by-step Parents & Teachers Interview Booking Sheet with clear instructions.

Should you or your son have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Syarief Achmad or Mr Joel Howard on (02) 9764 3611.
