In the the weeks leading up to our Multicultural Day festivities many boys got busy with their pens and entered a competition to produce the best poem to celebrate the wonderful diversity of our school community. The winners were presented with their prizes on the last day of term. They have proven that a skill with words not only lifts our spirits, but it can also bring tangible rewards! One hundred and thirty five dollars worth of prizes were distributed; there will be more opportunities for boys to exercise their pens for profit later in the year. Given the standard of entries for this competition the English department are in a frenzy of expectation about the next competition!

Congratulations to Eli Mansfield and William Knight who shared first prize. You can read their work, and see photos from the beautiful readings of the poems given on Multicultural Day. Congratulations to Darshan Neshabalan, Mohammed Hamza, Anargyros Kallos and Jay Silva who also won prizes. Many thanks to Avi Carleton and Billal Hassanzai for their beautiful readings on Multicultural Day.

The prefect body has been extremely busy this term, kicking off with our first meeting on Tuesday the 1st of May. Throughout the term, we have planned and undertaken many initiatives both within the school and abroad.

During the April school holidays, many prefects were involved in attending ANZAC services to remember and commemorate all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in wars, conflict and peacekeeping operations.

Alfred and I attended the Homebush ANZAC Service on Sunday the 22nd of April commemorative wreath, and the majority of the prefect body attended the Burwood RSL ANZAC Dawn Service on the 25th of April and laid a commemorative wreath at the Burwood War Memorial Arch.

Moreover, our school Captain Fawad Faheem, Vice-Captain Christopher Kadamani and Senior Prefect Ethan Tiah marched in the city with the Drum Corps. Thanks to all those prefects who sacrificed their time to represent Homebush Boys High School.
