At Homebush Boys High School we are raising funds by running, walking or cycling 5km for refugees through a campaign fundraiser launched by the UNHCR. Over the last few weeks, teachers and students @HBHS have been completing the 5km challenge and sharing their experiences on this site and on Facebook. 

Avi Carleton (Year 10)

The 5km run that I completed was a harsh reminder of how unfit I have become. To summarise, I was sweaty throughout. Though what I experienced is nothing compared to the struggle others less fortunate face around the world. It is crucial that we help these people suffering, particularly because we are fortunate enough to have the resources that do so. We must join together and try to contribute in one way or another, because any donation, no matter how small, is important. 

 

I nominate:

1. Jackson Campton

2. Henry Gao 

3. William Knight

4. Elias Mansfield

5. Brandon Price

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.

We would like to thank all the parents who have already completed the Tell Them From Me Survey and strongly encourage those parents who have not already had their say to use the link below.
 
Our aim is to have as many parents complete the survey to strengthen parent, teacher and school collaboration by providing our school with a deeper understanding of our parents’ perceptions of their child’s experiences at home and at HBHS

The North-West Metropolitan Zone has decided to cease our Winter Grade Sport Competition indefinitely, effective from today due to the new COVID-19 restrictions that have been implemented.
 
Please find a link to the practical guide for sport and physical activity - https://app.education.nsw.gov.au/sport/File/4512
 
House Sport will continue to run as it has for the Term. 
 
Grade Sport teams will partake in a HBHS sporting competition against other Grades for the remainder of the season e.g. 1st Grade Football vs 2nd Grade Football.
 
House Sport coaches will ensure that students are separated into their Stages whilst they are at sport, in order to limit the mixing of students between cohort groups. Years 7-8 will be grouped together, years 9-10 will be grouped together and year 11 students are to be by grouped together by themselves. 
 
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the front office or Mr. Kerem in the PDHPE Staffroom.
