  • Commencing from the 2018/2019 summer season at Homebush Boys HS, The cancellation of grade sport due to wet weather or ground closures will result in senior students of years 11 and 12 in the 2019 winter sports season being released from school at the end of period four, to return home to continue their study programs instead of remaining at school.

    Senior students will be expected on wet weather affected days to:

    1. Report to their sports coach at the beginning of lunch to have their names marked off, prior to leaving school grounds.
    2. Travel safely on the most direct route home.
    3. Remember that when you are in the public you are an ambassador of the school and your behaviour reflects the school image.
    4. Teams with a scheduled sport Bye will participate in a team training session and leave at the normal school sport conclusion time of 2:20pm.
    5. This arrangement is only for students participating in grade sport, all house sport students must stay at venues or wet weather rooms till the normal school sport conclusion time of 2:20pm.
  • The conditions for the selection of Winter Sports are outlined below.

    Please click on the image to view the sports selection sheet for winter 2019.

    1. Students are to access Moodle from the schools homepage and log in. Once in Moodle they are to enter Public (paper clip symbol) and then select the 2019 Sport Selections link and follow the instructions.
       
    2. Once in the 2019 Sport Selection page students are requested to nominate for ONE Grade or House Sport Activity. Please note you can only make one selection and students cannot change their selection once you click on the save button. So take care and think about your selection.
       
    3. Choose carefully/wisely! We will try to give each student the sport or activity that he requests, but that may not always be possible. If a sport selection is full you will not be able to join this sport online. If a sport is full the program will not allow you to be accepted into that sport and you will have to make another selection. Remember the early bird catches the worm! Priority will be given to students who are unsuccessful in Grade sport trials.
       
    4. Take careful notice of any special requirement for each sport, in particular the cost involved, venue location, transport arrangements and the equipment needed for the activity. Remember sport is compulsory/mandatory for all students including Year 12.

    8. On Thursday 2nd of August, Mr D Carrozza took the U16’s Futsal team to the State Futsal Championship at Penrith. Homebush Boys qualified for this championship by winning the Bankstown regional qualifier last term.

      Homebush Boys were placed in a difficult group which consisted of Wollongong Performing Arts, Mamre Anglican School, Elderslie and St Johns Park. With 3 wins and one draw, Homebush finished equal first in the group with Mamre, however, were pushed down to second on goal average. This meant we had to play a top seeded team from another group in the quarter finals.

      Throughout the group games the boys were struggling to play to their ability. However, this all changed during the quarter and semi-finals with the boys playing brilliantly in both games and coming out clear winners.

    9. Our Grade TT under 15's have played consistently well throughout the first semester of winter sport. In the final round with North Sydney Boys , the boys worked hard against a very 'hard to defeat' team and won the game.

      Congratulations!! Joseph Wang, Evan Xiong, Seokhee Lee, Lakshaya Kaushik, Michael Wang and Yoshua Tsang​.

    10. 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.

    11. I’m Nivethan Radhakrishnan. I’m currently in year 10, and I enjoy studying at our wonderful school. I am an avid sportsman, or to be precise, a cricketer. I adore playing cricket for our school, and bringing pride to the bushy boy emblem.

      Recently, in early March 2018, I travelled to Brisbane as part of the NSW U15 cricket team, and we competed in the National U15 championships. The team was picked after months of trials, and we were confident of a strong performance. We played against other states, and it was a great experience as a team and as individuals. Unfortunately, our tournament was cut short as we lost in the semi-finals to a strong Victorian side.

    12. Congratulations to our Boys Nathan, Tom, Bosco & Sudharshan who traveled to China during the first week of this term to participate at the 2018 HuiZhou International Junior Badminton Tournament! They traveled along with their teammates from Sydney Jets Badminton club. They've all gained a lot knowledge and inspiration in watching and competing with some of the world's junior elite players.
      We look forward to a very interesting winter grade sport for Badminton! 

    13. The school is holding its annual swimming carnival on Friday the 9th of February 2018. We are fortunate to have been able to book the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre at Homebush for our 73rd Swimming Carnival. Students will be able to use the most up-to-date equipment and compete in the actual pool that was used by competitors in the 2000 Olympic Games.

    14. Over the past term, several of our year 9 and 10 boys have been involved in the Creating Chances program. This program is aimed at developing the leadership and communication skills of select students and aims to encourage them to keep schooling as a priority.

      Each session, the students spend a period in the classroom looking at important life skills and values development. This is followed by a practical session where team-building and competitive games are played. The students have learnt several world traditional games in their practical lessons and taken away skills in communication, problem solving and resilience.

    15. On Saturday 2nd December Homebush Boys participated in a state badminton competition. The event was held at Canberra Grammar school and was attended by Samuel Chen, Bosco Hoang, Tom Li, Winston Li, Lawrence Li, Sudharshan Sundaramurthy and myself (Nathan Cheng).

      Mr Ramana organised the transport to the courts at Canberra Grammar. The competition began at 9am and concluded at 6pm with competition drawn from all over NSW & ACT ranging from teenagers to adults.

      We all enjoyed the experience of playing against ranking players. This has opened our eyes to the requirements of mixed competition and has helped us to improve our game skills.

      A huge thank you to our Coaches Mr Joe Teh, Mr Ha, Mr Ramana and the players of Sydney Jets Badminton for their continual training and support.

    18. Congratulations to Baki Redzeposki on taking double gold at Sydney International Open Judo Championships!

      On the weekend of 19th-20th August, Baki competed in the Sydney International Open Judo Championships. He won the GOLD in the young men's division which is under 21 years of age and also won the GOLD in the senior men's which was a massive result. Baki was the youngest competitor in the senior division. A very proud moment. He is now training at a three day judo camp in Olympic Park which finishes Wednesday.

    19. Letter to the Principal, 

      I am writing on behalf of the Sydney Sports Committee for students with additional needs. We held our annual athletics carnival last Friday (25th of August), where we had over 300 students from Special Schools and Support Units (24 schools in total) compete against each other. The carnival is a highlight of the year for the majority of students and staff as it provides opportunities that many students with additional needs do not regularly get. Students come away with new made friendships, higher self esteem and some even get a ribbon for the first time in their lives.

    20. Recently James Yates took part in the Worlds U17 Beach Handball World Championships in Mauritius and the U21 Men's Indoor Trophy Championships in Mauritius.

      At the U17 Worlds Beach Handball Championships in Mauritius their result was tenth out of sixteen nations represented.

      The U21 Indoor Trophy Championships took place in the Cook Islands Rarotonga. Their result was third place.

    21. Baki Redzeposki won a silver medal at the Judo National Championships in Queensland recently. Baki trained 6 days a week for 6 weeks before this event. He now ranks number 1 in the young men's u/81 kilo division. Baki was invited to compete in 3 European cup titles in July which is held in Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Germany.

      Well done Baki!

    22. On the 15th June my team and I (accompanied by Mr Howard and Ms Hankinson) played goalball.

      Goalball is a sport that is played in the Paralympics by players who can’t see. It can also be played by many people such as people who don’t have any issues in their body or people who just like to play. It is a worldwide sport for many countries and many people to enjoy.

      We drove to netball central at Sydney Olympic park to play goalball against schools across NSW.
