  • Homebush Boys High School, would like to invite you to attend the 10th Annual Ramadan Iftar night on Thursday the 23rd of May 2019.

    The event takes place at the School Hall at 4:30pm – 7:00pm and all students and teachers are invited to the event, Muslim and non-Muslim. Students are expected to buy tickets for $20 each and will be required to show their ticket on the night. A various selection of foods on the night will be provided for the students to choose from, and there will also be desserts and drinks available.

    Ramadan is the holy month in the Islamic calendar in which people of the Islamic faith fast for approximately 30 days from sunrise to sunset, in which Muslims are not allowed to consume any food or drink. Linguistically Iftar means the breaking of the fast, and it is an Islamic tradition to break it with an odd amount of dates and some water. Ramadan is a time of the year where Muslims try to understand what the poor and needy feel in times of hunger and desperation but more importantly to reconnect to their faith and strengthen their relationship with God Almighty.

    Ramadan is a time of reflection, but also a time to enjoy and we hope you will be able to join us for the Iftar night and enjoy your time there.

  • Another term has passed, tucked under the belt of all students and staff. Particularly all of Year 12, who are one term closer to the Trials, the HSC, and ultimately the end of their high schooling career to begin a new chapter in life. Many things have happened during this term, notably many Prefect events and initiatives that the school has beared witness. To mark the closure of this term, here are a few things that have happened over the last term.

    To start of the term, the Prefects organised a barbeque for the Perfect afternoon tea. Hosting other school Prefects to collaborate and compare, gaining new ideas for school initiatives and meeting many new people. As the term progressed, the Prefects were a part of the SRCs, Anti-Bullying barbeque and the World's Greatest Shave, which were hugely successful. As the term drew to a close, the Prefect put together a Trivia Lunch, were student from all years signed up and participated in a much anticipated competition to win grand rewards. The student response for this event was astounding, with all available positions in the competition taken up by students from all years. Thank you to all the students who participated, and congratulations to the winners.

  • The Homebush Boys Prefects, organised a ‘Trivia Lunch’ on Monday the 8th of April in rooms 26/27, with many boys from all years joining in. It was a great and memorable day as there were plenty of laughter, fun and challenging questions being asked.

    The Trivia lunch included a variety of stimulating questions from topics such as sport, movies, flags and famous people that all competitors enjoyed. There were 8 teams of 4 to 5 from all years who competed. The winning group of the Trivia Lunch each received a prize of a $5 canteen voucher. All competitors had fun answering the wide range of questions, enjoyed themselves and were excited and happy to compete in another Trivia competition.

    The Trivia Lunch was entertaining and enjoyable, thanks to the hard work and organisation from Mrs Duch, Ms Hasham and the Prefect Body who helped out. With a special thanks to Peter Gock, Calvin Ittura and Jay Park for organising the Trivia Lunch. Another thanks to all the competitors that came on time and listened carefully to the instructions of the Prefect organisers.

    • The 8th of March marks International Women’s Day, a day that recognises the many important women in our lives, and celebrates the achievements of women. I, Ashfeen Ferdouse, along with other Year 10 SRC members Jayden Chan, Haren Kumaralingam, and David Kadamani, and our teacher Ms. Hasham, had the privilege of attending the Strathfield Council International Women’s Day morning tea at Strathfield Town Hall. We had the pleasure of listening to two great orators, Stacey Gadd who is the ambassador for Pink Hope and Dr Lim who currently presents on the ABC show ‘Ask The Doctor’. We also had the opportunity to listen to the Mayor of Strathfield, Mr Gulian Vaccari, speak about the importance of women and their contribution to our society.

    • On behalf of the Interact Club, we’d like to thank the whole school community for getting behind The World’s Greatest Shave.

      Blood cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma. And every day, another 35 people will be diagnosed.

      Your support will help give those facing the shock of a blood cancer diagnosis, the emotional and practical support they need; and fund vital research so more people survive.

      In total, we helped raise $3800 towards The Leukaemia Foundation. Peter Smith who selflessly gives up his time to support any volunteering/charity that takes place at school and outside of school. He shaved his head and raised $1000. Meleik Trad, of Year 8, took the initiative to do some fundraising of his own, and ended up digging into his savings account to reach his goal of $1200, no mean feat!

    • On Friday 14th Week 9, 7A and Ms Yong collected and raised money for the UNHCR foundation during assembly and lunch outside the canteen. In case you don’t know what the UNHCR foundation is, it is a foundation which raises money for the refugees in need. We promoted the fundraiser by asking students to bring in their lunch from home and to donate the money intended to spend on lunch to the UNHCR.

      7A students Shaasi Maheswaran, Ayman Chaabou, Zane Hamad, Aditya Tiwari, Sameen Roka  and Aarav Sharma spoke at assembly, informing the school about the fundraiser and the UNHCR. “Lunch Money for Refugees” cause provides severely malnourished children with type of peanut butter substance that helps gain weight rapidly and safely. Every year around three million children under five die due to causes related to malnourishment. Yet even a severely malnourished child has a 98% chance of survival if they receive support in time.

    • Homebush Boys High School are inspired by the work of Australia for UNHCR and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Lunch Money for Refugees. By bringing your lunch from home and donating your lunch money or even a gold coin donation to Australia for UNHCR, you can help provide life-saving nutrition to children in need. In Week 9, Friday 14th December students from 7A will be collecting donations during assembly and at lunch outside the canteen.

      The more people that know about Australia for UNHCR, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
