  • Athletics Carnival 2021

    Homebush Boys High School will be holding its 84th annual athletics carnival on Monday 17th May 2021. We are fortunate to have been able to book the Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre at Homebush for this event. Students will be able to use the most up-to-date equipment and compete on the warm-up track that was used by competitors in the Olympic Games.

    This is a formal school event and attendance is compulsory. Admission to the carnival has been paid out of the school fees. Students will be marked present before entering the Athletics Centre based on Houses. Students are encouraged to wear clothing in their house colours and each student doing so will be awarded a bonus point towards the carnival results. Rolls will be marked at 8.30am, outside the main entrance.

  • Free Eye Tests

    The school is pleased to announce that the Student Eyecare Program will be running in Term 2.  An optometrist will be onsite during school hours to provide students with a free comprehensive eye examination that is covered through Medicare Australia. 1 in 6 students have eye conditions that go undetected. This is due to the high level of visual demand on their eyes from books, laptops, tablets and smartphones. Every student will receive a full report about their eye health and a prescription will be provided if glasses are required. The prescription can be taken to any optical store to get the glasses made. Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity. If you would like for your son to take part in the program, please ensure that they return the permission note as soon as possible.

  • World Teachers Day

    Homebush Boys High School says thank you to all its wonderful teachers

    Australia will celebrate and thank the teaching profession on World Teachers’ Day - Friday 30 October.

    Teachers have gone above and beyond to ensure education continued across NSW this year, despite major challenges. It has reinforced the significant role that teachers play in the lives of students, their families and communities.

    On Friday 30 October, we acknowledge their efforts and we would like everyone to say a big thank you to our teachers and to celebrate the bright future of teaching.

    World Teachers’ Day is held internationally in early October. As it fell during the school holidays for many parts of Australia, we celebrate a little later. Make sure you thank teachers!

    4. UNHCR Shelters for Lebanon

      On Tuesday 1st September, a handful for year 8 students volunteered their time to raise money for the thousands of people who have been affected by the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. They collected donations from staff and students and also sold maroon wristbands for $2 which state #HBHS Stands with Refugees. Through their awesome efforts we raised $295.40 and this money will go directly towards helping those affected in Beirut. They have shared their experiences on volunteering at our school.

      Hussain Rahimi

      1. I volunteered to help the UNHCR shelters for Lebanon fundraiser ant HBHS because I wanted to give back to the community by helping raise money for an important cause.
      2. We helped raise money by going around to classes and selling wristbands for $2 and the money went towards the UNHCR shelters for Lebanon.
      3. I think we should help others because you don't know what someone is going through until you've gone through it that's why we should help others and help will come back when you need it.
    5. Parent Surveys - Tell Them from Me

      Update: 04/09/2020
