Another term has passed, tucked under the belt of all students and staff. Particularly all of Year 12, who are one term closer to the Trials, the HSC, and ultimately the end of their high schooling career to begin a new chapter in life. Many things have happened during this term, notably many Prefect events and initiatives that the school has beared witness. To mark the closure of this term, here are a few things that have happened over the last term.

To start of the term, the Prefects organised a barbeque for the Perfect afternoon tea. Hosting other school Prefects to collaborate and compare, gaining new ideas for school initiatives and meeting many new people. As the term progressed, the Prefects were a part of the SRCs, Anti-Bullying barbeque and the World's Greatest Shave, which were hugely successful. As the term drew to a close, the Prefect put together a Trivia Lunch, were student from all years signed up and participated in a much anticipated competition to win grand rewards. The student response for this event was astounding, with all available positions in the competition taken up by students from all years. Thank you to all the students who participated, and congratulations to the winners.

The Homebush Boys Prefects, organised a ‘Trivia Lunch’ on Monday the 8th of April in rooms 26/27, with many boys from all years joining in. It was a great and memorable day as there were plenty of laughter, fun and challenging questions being asked.

The Trivia lunch included a variety of stimulating questions from topics such as sport, movies, flags and famous people that all competitors enjoyed. There were 8 teams of 4 to 5 from all years who competed. The winning group of the Trivia Lunch each received a prize of a $5 canteen voucher. All competitors had fun answering the wide range of questions, enjoyed themselves and were excited and happy to compete in another Trivia competition.

The Trivia Lunch was entertaining and enjoyable, thanks to the hard work and organisation from Mrs Duch, Ms Hasham and the Prefect Body who helped out. With a special thanks to Peter Gock, Calvin Ittura and Jay Park for organising the Trivia Lunch.

The Bill Turner Cup is an under 15s knockout competition held annually, where schools from all over the state compete against each other.

On Thursday the 11th of April, the under 15s Football squad travelled to Strathfield Park to verse Fort Street High School. This was a great challenge for the squad as they have had a mixed start to the new season, however it was an opportunity to build chemistry for the long season ahead.

As the game progressed, the boys had a great hold on the possession and had a chance early on but hit came off the crossbar. However that was short lived as Homebush struck first, thanks to a great finish from Kevin Burca. As the first goal went into, Homebush took their opportunities further and Kevin Burca added to his goal tally by tapping in a goal off a well swung in corner kick.
