Business Day

On a cold morning of the 21st May, a group of Year 10 students attended the business day at UNSW (Kensington campus) to experience what it was like to do business at university. There were many different schools attending from all over Sydney. We were greeted by a group of student ambassadors who directed us to the registration table. Soon after, we received a bag filled with UNSW merchandise (a journal, pen, water bottle, card holder that sticks to your phone and also can be used as a stand). After that we were directed into a lecture hall where the presentations began. Firstly, the Professor gave us a presentation about the introduction of what business was and the various courses involved. There were a couple of students who shared their experience with us about doing their degree at UNSW and why they chose UNSW.

They presented us with a summary of different courses and the requirements for each course. We then split up into our allocated groups (based on the various fields of business we chose online) to attend our first workshop. The first workshop I did was about marketing. We split up into groups - consisting of I (Justin Lam), Merton Cheng, Michael Wang and Sudharshan Sundaramurthy - and we had to create a poster on a new invention that would convince the community to drink water and we had to present to the other group members. After that we had the opportunity to purchase lunch from the food court, must I say, the food their wasn’t half bad. Afterwards we were instructed to head back into the lecture hall and we had the chance to have a Q&A session with the panel (Current and past students) using online program called Slido. They presented us with very well and informative answers. We then headed to our final workshop, economics, and the professor gave us an introduction on economics, the theory behind it.

On Sunday 19th May, eight students from year 11 participated in the Volleyball NSW Schools Cup at Sydney Olympic Park. The team was made up of Shivam Bhonsle, Daniel Carnt, Gautham Deepa Kumar, Shiv Gowrishankar, Danees Krishnapalan, Sourabh Leelchand, Jason Qian and Aryan Sharma.

Our first match started at 8am where we played against Baulkham Hills High School. Despite the valiant efforts of our team and a well fought match, Baulkham Hills came away with the win in the first round. Second match was against Ryde Secondary College where it was a close game but we were beaten by the buzzer and Ryde were awarded the win. We had a decisive win in the third round against Kingsgrove High School, putting us in third place going into the semifinals. The team also completed match duties during the competition, with all our boys stepping up to the challenge of refereeing, scoring and line refereeing.

Knowing we had lost to Ryde was a challenge going into the semifinal match against them, but morale was high and we managed to come away with a win in a tight match, putting us through to the grand final. This was the best match Homebush played that day. We fought hard, eager to get every point we could against Baulkham Hills but unfortunately, they were just too good. We finished the day happy, proud and with silver medals around our necks, an exceptional effort for playing five matches over the course of the day.

Last weekend approximately 70 of our students gave up their time to support the Red Shield Appeal and made a remarkable contribution to the charity. These boys represented themselves beautifully and modelled what it means to be socially just in a fantastic manner. The bushy boy message spoke loudly and clearly.

Please note the contributions made and some of the comments made from the public.

The "on the day" donations totalled $14,810 - and with various static collections during the previous week we raised a total of in excess of $23,000.

Your students looked very smart in their uniforms - and were a credit to their school. I received numerous comments, from the drivers, saying how courteous and polite the lads were - one lady said "they were a credit to their school".

As you know, your son has been participating in NAPLAN Online during this and the previous week. Regrettably, there were some connectivity issues that disrupted your child’s experience during testing. Understandably, some students may have been impacted to an extent that affected their performance in the assessment.

The connectivity issues were reported to the national education testing authorities responsible for NAPLAN Online, who have now decided that eligible students will have the opportunity to re-sit the tests on Tuesday 28th May.

In your son’s case, he is able to re-sit the writing test.

Re-sitting the NAPLAN writing test is entirely optional, and your son does not have to participate if you do not wish him to do so. In considering whether your son should re-sit the test, please be aware that only the result of the second test will be recorded as your son’s result for NAPLAN 2019.
