  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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! 

  • 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.

    All students are expected to attend, either as spectators or participants. Admission to the carnival has been paid out of the voluntary school fees. Students will be marked present before entering the Aquatic Centre based on Houses. Students are encouraged to wear clothing in their house colours or wear their school sports uniform.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Last term, a group of year nine and ten boys participated in the AFL skills program. The program was run by the AFL (Sydney Swans) and supported by Western Suburbs Junior Australian Football Club. The program took place during period four Tuesdays for five weeks on the Western grass.

    Over the course of five weeks, we learnt and developed different skills such as kicking, handpassing, marking and evading. We did so using drills, competitions and games, incorporating skills that we had learnt.

    The skills we learnt are beneficial, providing us with necessary skills to play AFL for a local club or even in other sports.

  • It was with a heavy heart that we had our last day of Tennis for Wednesday sport at Powel Creek Tennis Courts as we will be moving on to Summer sport next week. We gave Brett, our coach, a thank you card for all his hard work and effort with the group this semester. He organised regular competative games such as "Hot Shot" and "First to 21" which the students enjoyed immensely. His enthusiasm and encouragement on the court also meant that everybody's tennis game improved, too. We look forward to the next time we can play under his tutelage. 

  • Concord Comets Baseball Club is a local community Baseball club. It is run by parent volunteers to provide kids in our local area with the opportunity to play Baseball. We have a proud history in grass roots sport. We put player participation first and work hard at not only developing the skills of our players, but also instilling the values of good sportsmanship.

    The physical and social benefits of playing sport are well documented. Playing Baseball is a good way to develop hand-eye coordination, quick thinking and reaction skills. Playing Baseball is an ideal way to make friends while at the same time getting a healthy dose of exercise. Running, catching, throwing and swinging a bat have benefits for your whole body.

  • Year 11 and 12 students have been issued with the following letter to clarify our School policy regarding Student Travel to Sport.

    The Homebush Boys High School Sports Policy 2017 clearly states that “walking/public transport/organised school bus are the ONLY forms of transport to and from sport. Students are NOT to drive and/or be a passenger in their private vehicle or someone else’s vehicle when travelling to and from sport”.

    Student behaviour and travel to sport is also addressed in the School’s Safety. Learning and Respect framework and in our 2017 Bushy Boys behaviours.

    Additionally, our student insurance policy does not cover student drivers and their passengers for travel to and from sporting venues in private vehicles.

    If you or your son have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Paleothodoros (Rel Principal), Mrs Shadwick (Rel Deputy Principal) or Mr Carrozza (Sports Coordinator) on 97643611.
