  • In the month of November, the Prefect Team is raising funds and educating the student body about men’s health. To change the face of men’s health, the prefects are running a competition of “Who can grow the best moustache” between a chosen number of staff and students from the Prefect Body, in order to raise money for the Movember charity. The Prefects are implementing a new fundraising scheme which seeks to raise money through the use of a donation box inside the canteen. This scheme will run for the course of Movember and will allow students and staff to donate to the charity to help to raise funds and promote awareness of men’s health and more specifically, prostate cancer. At the end of November, the Prefect Body will hold a commemorative lunch to mark the end of Movember. During this lunch, the prefects will shave their moustaches (and possibly wax their legs) in front of the school, under the arches.

    To support this great cause, please go online to donate or you can put your change from the canteen into the donation tins.

    Thank you

    The Prefect Team

Year 12 students as well as teachers from both schools took part, in a trivia quiz that tested the fundamental areas of knowledge: TV/Film, Music, Sports, General Knowledge and of course famous logos. From the opening two rounds of questions it was clear that there were two standout teams from the teachers. The English team included Ms Khan, Ms Mirkova, Ms Bonis, Ms Karas, Mrs Edwards and with help from Mr Elgood, and the “social science” team comprised of Mr Kisso, Ms Coutinho, Ms Napoli, Ms Budanovic, Mr Achmad and Mr Stinson who held the early 1st and 2nd places.

  • In Semester 1, over 150 students from years 7 to 11 received Blue Awards as a result of consistent effort in all their subjects. To recognise the effort of these boys, the executive teachers in conjunction with Mr Elaro, decided to treat the award recipients to a day at the movies. After period one on Tuesday, 20th of August,132 students caught the train from Homebush to Rhodes.

    Years 7, 8 and 9 watched the reinvented Disney classic “The Lion King”, while the older boys watched the action packed “Hobbs and Shaw”. The day was a very good experience and was great to be recognised for our academic efforts. In addition to being lots of fun and enjoyment, it provides an incentive for students to strive for a blue awards next semester so they too can have a day out at the movies.

    On behalf of all blue award recipients, I would like to thank the executive team; Mr Elgood, Ms Paleothedoras, Mrs Shadwick and Mr Achmad with a special thanks to Mr Elaro for organising the day.

  • Semester 1 Blue and Maroon Awards have been decided and it’s time to celebrate the students’ application and effort.

    The awards are derived from the work ethics and application according to the reports each semester. This is the second semester that students’ consistent effort and application have been recognised and rewarded at Homebush Boys.

    It is very pleasing to see that there is an increase in the number of students receiving these awards. This is also a strong indication that the students are embracing these awards and trying their hardest in all their classes.

    And remember students, you don’t need any ability or special talent to apply yourself to the best of your ability in every lesson. Everyone can choose to do their best.
