The P & C has been very busy in 2013. We held our first meeting and our AGM on the 26th March 2013 and our new P & C Executive members were elected. We have held meetings most months since then and enjoyed listening to guests speaking on a variety of topics including Career pathways, Technology at HBHS and Learner Support. These meetings also give parents a chance to be heard about topics and issues that they are interested in. YOU get a say and your say can make changes at our school to the benefit our our students and community.
Mr Jurd and one or both of our Deputy Principals Ms Dwyer and Mr Khurshed are usually in attendance and they welcome your opinions and contributions so come along and see what the P & C does for the school and see what you can do as well.

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.
