On Monday 11th November 2019, Homebush Boys High School Prefects attended the special Remembrance Day Ceremony held at the Auburn War Memorial Park. It is important that all young Australians participated in this commemorative event as Remembrance Day is a very significant date in Australia’s history. By participating in this event, the students shared with the Returned Services Men and Women the traditions and spirit of Anzac. Engaging in the ceremony, the Prefects were invited to place an individual name tag on a field of 140 miniature crosses, one for each of the men of Auburn who have died in the Great War.

In the month of November, the Prefect Team is raising funds and educating the student body about men’s health. To change the face of men’s health, the prefects are running a competition of “Who can grow the best moustache” between a chosen number of staff and students from the Prefect Body, in order to raise money for the Movember charity. The Prefects are implementing a new fundraising scheme which seeks to raise money through the use of a donation box inside the canteen. This scheme will run for the course of Movember and will allow students and staff to donate to the charity to help to raise funds and promote awareness of men’s health and more specifically, prostate cancer. At the end of November, the Prefect Body will hold a commemorative lunch to mark the end of Movember. During this lunch, the prefects will shave their moustaches (and possibly wax their legs) in front of the school, under the arches.

To support this great cause, please go online to donate or you can put your change from the canteen into the donation tins.

Thank you

The Prefect Team
