The North-West Metropolitan Zone has decided to cease our Winter Grade Sport Competition indefinitely, effective from today due to the new COVID-19 restrictions that have been implemented.
Please find a link to the practical guide for sport and physical activity - https://app.education.nsw.gov.au/sport/File/4512
House Sport will continue to run as it has for the Term. 
Grade Sport teams will partake in a HBHS sporting competition against other Grades for the remainder of the season e.g. 1st Grade Football vs 2nd Grade Football.
House Sport coaches will ensure that students are separated into their Stages whilst they are at sport, in order to limit the mixing of students between cohort groups. Years 7-8 will be grouped together, years 9-10 will be grouped together and year 11 students are to be by grouped together by themselves. 
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the front office or Mr. Kerem in the PDHPE Staffroom.

Dear parents & caregivers,

This Term, all Year 9 students will be involved in reading and numeracy Check-in assessment.
Check-in assessment is a NSW Department of Education online reading and numeracy assessment available to support schools to assess and monitor student learning, following the period of learning from home. This assessment supplements existing school practices to identify how students are performing in reading and numeracy, and assists schools to respond to student needs in these areas. It compensates to some extent for the cancellation of the NAPLAN tests this year.
This assessment is scheduled for Thursday 3rd September (Week 7 of Term). Friday 4th September will be a catch-up day.

As part of the Homebush Boys community we aim to support the displaced people in Beirut, Lebanon following the explosion which killed over 200 people and injured more than 5,000. It has left as many as 300,000 without a home in a matter of minutes during a severe economic crisis and an already overwhelmed health system caused by the pandemic. ​
