The final Citizenship Ceremony was held on 8th November 2012 at the Strathfield Council Town Hall and was attended by the new 2013 Year 12 Prefects Nayan Bhathela, Ibrahim Saker, Leandros Pandoulis and Cameron Murray.

Chatty and exuberant, the boys did a great job assisting in the preparation and presentation of the food for the ceremony which was a very busy affair. The boys were complimented on their good manners and the new citizens complimented our school for their assistance in this event. The Mayor of Strathfield Mr Gulian Vaccari commented that the boys had done a 'great job' as well.

The first Citizenship Ceremony for the year was held on Thursday 11th April 2013 and attended by 120 new citizens and their families. Guest speaker for the evening was Australian novelist, playwright, author and 'Australian Living Treasure' Mr Thomas Keneally who incidentally was educated just around the corner at St Pats about 65 years ago?

Homebush Boys was represented by three very happy and helpful seniors, namely Prefects Serge Houhlias and Rowan Castro and SRC President Ayman Hill. They prepared and presented an array of mouthwatering dishes supplied by a wonderful volunteer group of parents. Without the support of parents at the school we would not be able to continue this fundraising venture which raises $2000 annually for the P & C to distribute throughout the school. Our thanks to all those parents who supply food or a monetary donation for the purchase of food and a big thank you to Prefect Coordinator Ms Jenelle Horiatopoulos for her continued support organising the student helpers and thank you to Laura Donahue in the school office who collects and safe guards the donations. We couldn't run this event  without these wonderful ladies.

If you would like to volunteer by supplying a plate of finger food or a monetary donation for the purchase of food, please call Laura on phone: 9764 3611 and leave your details.
