Thank you to all the staff, parents and students that came to support #jm14 which was held on the 22nd of August in the school hall. It was an energetic night filled with cheers, laughter and most importantly an exhibition of young creative talent.

jm14 (justMEDIA) is an annual digital media exhibition which is held at Homebush Boys High School. It showcases the creative productions of Preliminary and HSC Industrial Technology Multimedia students.

This year marked the debut of justMEDIA which included a strong display of inspirational digital media projects in the categories of film, 2D/3D animation, web design and live musical performances.

For those who could not make it on the night you can now revisit some of the work on our Homebush Boys Multimedia YouTube channel @ http://youtube.com/hbhsmultimedia or alternatively search “m homebush” on YouTube. Enjoy!

Homebush Boys students joined Federal Opposition deputy leader Ms Tanya Plibersek at the fundraising film "I am a girl" at the Chauvel Cinema. Funds from the film went to Unicef to help achieve a solution to the plight of the 200 girls kidnapped from the Northern Nigerian school by Boco Haram rebels.

Rotary DreamCricket Clinic

Homebush was invited to take part in a DreamCricket International Clinic designed to provide the opportunity for between 30 and 60 children in years 3 to 6 to take part in specially developed activities. Children with intellectual, physical, social, sight and hearing impaired disabilities that prevent them from taking part in normal sporting activities are encouraged to take part in this DreamCricket Clinic. The activities have been specifically designed and approved by a Exercise Physiologist to suit the students’ abilities.

DreamCricketwas invited to present their program at the Rotary International Convention at Homebush on Sunday June 1, 2014, between 11.30am and 2.00pm. This was a great opportunity to display to the world what these children can do given the opportunity, while “building  confidence and self-esteem through movement and participation”.
