On Thursday 7th of June, Mr D Carrozza took the U16’s Futsal team to the Regional Futsal Championship at Bankstown. Every year Football NSW run the Schools Futsal Championships in different regions around the state. These regional tournaments are used as qualifiers for the State Futsal Championship.

Homebush Boys finished second in their group with 3 wins and 1 loss, meaning they had to play one of the top seeded school from another group in the quarter finals. However, this motivated the boys even more and they put in a dominant performance easily winning 7-2.

Next up was the semi-final and the boys were feeling confident. The game didn’t start well and Homebush were down 1-0 early in the game. Through hard work the boys replied with 3 quick goals, with the score remaining 3-1 until the last three minutes with Homebush conceding. This made for a very nervous last three minutes. However, the boys defended brilliantly and scored within the last minute to win 4-2. With this win Homebush made it to the grand final and qualifying for the state championships.

The school’s PB4L Team has initiated awards that will reward students for effort. We all know about presentation days rightly recognising first place in every subject and each year group have a dux.

Now every student will be able to be recognised for effort and application each semester. The awards are named after our school colours. A Blue Award recognises a student whose effort and application have been outstanding in every subject. A Maroon Award will be presented to a student whose effort and application are outstanding in all but one subject. The reports for each semester will determine these awards.

The first formal assemblies were held for the Year 11 and Year 12 cohorts on Tuesday 3 July in the school hall. About half of the students in each cohort were rewarded for their consistent effort and application in semester 1. The students who received awards are listed below. Congratulations to all of them.

The Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 assemblies will be held early term 2.

As well, there is no reason why every student, in every grade, can’t receive one of these awards in semester 2!
