  • Female Staff recognised on International Women’s Day

    The female staff at Homebush Boys High School were presented with a special morning tea on Wednesday 8th March, courtesy of Mr Saber and his Year 10 Food Technology class. This was a surprise gesture in recognition for the contribution made by all female staff to the academic and wellbeing needs of all students. The following is a response by the Relieving Deputy Principal to Mr Saber acknowledging his efforts on International Women’s Day.

    Dear Mr Saber,

    On behalf of all the women who work at HBHS, I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to you and your Year 10 class for providing such a beautifully presented and delicious morning tea. A true credit to you and the leadership you constantly provide for these students.

    The ladies enjoyed this special treat on such an important date to make the significance women have made in our lives and in the workforce. It meant a lot to me as I'm sure it did for all other female staff.




  • Professional Learning at HBHS

    On-going professional learning, at Homebush Boys High School, is essential in ensuring that staff is provided with current information, developments and future educational direction.  Complementing this, is the teaching and learning process, staff commitment to life-long learning and most importantly, the continual need for further skills development and improvement.  As a school we recognise, value and support the need for opportunities for all staff to be professional committed learners in an on-going manner. 

  • Personalised Learning and Support Tool (PLASST) 2013 Trial

    During the next few weeks our school, along with other public schools in the area, will be participating in the trial of a new tool (PLASST) being developed by the Department of Education and Communities for teachers to identify the learning and support needs of their students.

    This trial is focussed on the development of a sound and reliable online tool that, when finalised, can be used by teachers in collaboration with parents and carers to identify the strengths and educational needs of students with additional learning and support needs. This information will assist schools in planning and personalising learning and support for individual students who require adjustments in their day to day learning.
