The rumours had been running hot that the new book in the Wimpy Kid series would soon hit the shelves. These lucky year 7 students were first in line to get a copy! No doubt book reviews will be on their way. The series, by Jeff Kinney, is such a popular series that the library has ordered multiple copies. Keep checking to see if the book you want is back on the shelf! If you wish, you can also reserve a copy so you won't miss out!

On Monday 11th November 2019, Homebush Boys High School Prefects attended the special Remembrance Day Ceremony held at the Auburn War Memorial Park. It is important that all young Australians participated in this commemorative event as Remembrance Day is a very significant date in Australia’s history. By participating in this event, the students shared with the Returned Services Men and Women the traditions and spirit of Anzac. Engaging in the ceremony, the Prefects were invited to place an individual name tag on a field of 140 miniature crosses, one for each of the men of Auburn who have died in the Great War.

In the month of November, the Prefect Team is raising funds and educating the student body about men’s health. To change the face of men’s health, the prefects are running a competition of “Who can grow the best moustache” between a chosen number of staff and students from the Prefect Body, in order to raise money for the Movember charity. The Prefects are implementing a new fundraising scheme which seeks to raise money through the use of a donation box inside the canteen. This scheme will run for the course of Movember and will allow students and staff to donate to the charity to help to raise funds and promote awareness of men’s health and more specifically, prostate cancer. At the end of November, the Prefect Body will hold a commemorative lunch to mark the end of Movember. During this lunch, the prefects will shave their moustaches (and possibly wax their legs) in front of the school, under the arches.

To support this great cause, please go online to donate or you can put your change from the canteen into the donation tins.

Thank you

The Prefect Team

The Year 12 Clearance Day is on Friday 15 November 2019 from 11:30 am till 3:00 pm in the School Hall.

Students are asked to return all textbooks and school resources as well as settle all outstanding school and subject specific fees.

As in previous years, Homebush Boys High School continues to support the Exodus Foundation and students are asked to bring in a can of non-perishable food or a $2 donation as their contribution. Mr Madyski will be collecting all cans as he signs Year 12 students off all sporting fee commitments.

In the words of a previous sports coordinator, Mr Tedford.....No Can, No Can DO!

Year 12 References will be available for all students at the end of the clearance process.​

For the month of November, selected boys from Year 8 and Year 10 are spending their Tuesdays making artworks for the Lidcombe Center. This was a way to congratulate these students of their efforts in Visual Arts this year and to inspire them for their further studies next year. Each week the boys are making artworks that are then uploaded to the Lidcombe Centre's Facebook and Instagram pages, voted on by the public and awards of $200 and $100 will be given to the winning artworks. Working closely with the marketing manager of the Lidcombe Centre, Setty Ferdousian, we are looking forward to displaying more work in the centre, creating murals and finding news ways in which the creative arts at Homebush Boys High School can engage with its community in valuable and sustainable ways.

Congratulations to Bassam Maaliki of Year 11 for being nominated and reaching the final 4 in the category of NSW Young Australian of the Year Awards for 2020 for his work as a refugee advocate and fundraiser. Bassam is a second generation Lebanese Australian Muslim who at the age of 14 set up the #UBelong project to help all refugees, regardless of background or ethnicity, to feel at home in Australia.

By creating and selling key-shaped badges – a symbol of belonging – Bassam has raised more than $60,000 for refugee support groups and charities. People who buy Bassam's badges can wear them in solidarity with refugees, migrants and all people seeking asylum, helping raise awareness about the challenges of refugees and the importance of multicultural inclusion.
