The past few weeks have seen Sydney North trials in Touch Football, Rugby Union and Rugby League as well as CHS Rugby Union happening all over Sydney. Homebush Boys had representatives at all trials with the boys making their own way there and representing our school with pride. In the Under 15’s Sydney North Touch Football Joseph Teaupa was selected to represent Sydney North. After not making it last year it is a great achievement to see this talented footballer make it at the age of 14 with another year still to go in this age division.

At the Sydney North Opens Rugby Union Trials we had Cooper Vati of Year 11 attend the trial and was selected for the team. Next we had six representatives of Homebush Boys attend the CHS under 16’s Rugby Union trials, this is a tough trial with boys skipping regional level and trialling for state. Ibrahim Elcheikh was honoured with being selected and is now invited to attend the next level of trials for selection into the CHS team. Finally there was the Boys under 15’s Rugby League where Ibrahim Elcheikh again, a very talented footballer was selected. All Homebush representatives are to be congratulated for attending the trials and giving their all to represent our school. To those who were selected congratulations.

The 8th of March marks International Women’s Day, a day that recognises the many important women in our lives, and celebrates the achievements of women. I, Ashfeen Ferdouse, along with other Year 10 SRC members Jayden Chan, Haren Kumaralingam, and David Kadamani, and our teacher Ms. Hasham, had the privilege of attending the Strathfield Council International Women’s Day morning tea at Strathfield Town Hall. We had the pleasure of listening to two great orators, Stacey Gadd who is the ambassador for Pink Hope and Dr Lim who currently presents on the ABC show ‘Ask The Doctor’. We also had the opportunity to listen to the Mayor of Strathfield, Mr Gulian Vaccari, speak about the importance of women and their contribution to our society.

On the 2nd April Homebush Boys attended the Sydney North Buckley Shield Gala day for the Under 14’s Rugby League. 16 boys represented Homebush and all played outstandingly. Game one saw them up against Narrabeen Sports High, undoubtedly the toughest game of the day. The boys were down 4 to nil and came back to score and convert to be up 6-4. The game went try for try until Homebush scored with little time remaining to seal the deal. To say I was impressed is an understatement. The boys held their composure and played with true grit to come away with the win. They then had to play the second toughest team Marsden High with no rest, again coming away with the win. Our forwards, second row and lock dominating the opposition.
