On Monday the 4th of June, a group of 40 students from years 10, 11 and 12 headed to the Trades Expo at the ICC at Darling Harbour. It was a day of exploring, understanding and observing of the different types of trades in the industry. We were given a chance to explore each trade throughout the day to learn more about the pathways we could pursue to. There were trade displays which ranged from automotive, carpentry, construction, electrician, plumbing, bricklaying, commercial cookery and many more. There were also representatives from TAFE  as they showed us pathways and discussed what they offer.

The trades were showcased by many businesses which proved to be very insightful and interesting for us. The companies who were displaying their type of trade, also gave us an opportunity to experience hands on tasks.

This week Homebush Boys High School has celebrated Refugee week in many ways. We believe everyone has the right to live safely and be treated with respect, regardless of their background.

The Social Justice Club have initiated several activities this week. Duy Quang Mai and Ben Jorgensen have designed lessons which were delivered during roll call by teachers. These lessons focused on creating awareness about refugees and how we can best create positive change. Within these lessons year 7 students and Mr Desovki made a Refugee Week video which aims to show how Homebush Boys High School supports refugees.

On Tuesday 26th June Mrs Lipi Mathur from the Science Faculty held a food stall selling food to raise awareness about the challenges refugees face, especially when it comes to their diet. Her tremendous efforts along with members of the Social Justice Club raised hundreds of dollars which will be donated to the charity Act for Peace.
