As you may be aware, I recently convened a merit selection panel for the permanent position of principal at Homebush Boys High School.

This panel included an elected staff representative, a P&C nominated parent representative, a school community representative, a principal from another area of Sydney and myself as convenor.

It is my pleasure to announce that Mr Kevin Elgood, former Principal at East Hills Boys High School, has been successful through merit in being appointed as the new principal of Homebush Boys High School.

In the time that Mr Elgood has been principal of East Hills Boys High School he has demonstrated his capacity to effectively lead and manage the learning community and brings to this position extensive knowledge and expertise of the principalship role.

Mr Elgood is a passionate educational leader, who possesses a strong commitment to working collaboratively with all key stakeholders to ensure high standards for student achievement and leadership.

I know you will join me in congratulating Mr Elgood on this fantastic achievement.

The school is holding its annual athletics carnival on Thursday 29th of March 2018. We are fortunate to have been able to book the Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre at Homebush for this event. Students will be able to use the most up-to-date equipment and compete on the warm-up track that was used by competitors in the Olympic Games.

Students are to make their own way to and from the venue.

All students are expected to attend, either as spectators or participants. Admission to the carnival has been paid out of the voluntary school fees. Students will be marked present before entering the Athletics Centre based on Houses. Students are encouraged to wear clothing in their house colours and each student doing so will be awarded a bonus point towards the carnival results. Rolls will be marked at 8.30am, just outside the main entrance.
