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.

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.

Getting a bit of a Ghostbuster vibe, or does it look as though the boys have their Hazmat suits on? Close, but not quite, as our selfless volunteers were in action once again. Giving up part of their weekend to assist with the removal of Graffiti in the local community. The work that these boys do is fabulous and definitely leave their mark in the area. Once again done with the help of our friendly Rotarian Peter Smith.

Great work everyone and thank you for being so considerate!

Over the month of March, staff from Homebush Boys and students from the Support Unit raised awareness about Autism. We did this by participating in Walk for Autism which required all team members to walk 10000 steps a day from March 21-28. Each day during week 9 this term, we walked as a group to raise awareness. We collaborated with another school in the local area, Strathfield South High School, for a walk one morning and cooked a BBQ at Strathfield Park on the last day. Students from the Interact Club volunteered to walk and cook the BBQ with us which was fantastic.

The Homebush Boys team managed to raise $5016 for Aspect Australia which was an incredible achievement. Our target was $3000, so I want to thank everyone who supported us. As a school, we finished 9th overall!

Work Placement is a mandatory component of the Hospitality Kitchen Operations. Whilst Joshua was at his allocated work placement he was very impressive as he showed maturity and enthusiasm beyond his years. So much that he was offered casual employment and nominated for an award.

As a result Joshua Chong from the HSC 2020 cohort won the award last week for the Hospitality Kitchen Operations category at the MWLP Work Placement Awards. There were many applicants but only one winner.

Congratulations Joshua!
