Last term 7A completed a wonderful, enriching unit of work written by Ms Yong and delivered by Ms Bonis on “Heroes”. The objective was to expand understanding of the concept of heroes and apply this to real life contexts. The unit explored what it means to be a hero through the film medium, with close analysis of the film Zootopia. Students analysed the filmic features, but also went beyond this examining a range of heroes through history and in our everyday lives. This culminated in the appreciation of how we can all advocate for change in our worlds.

Last term, a group of year nine and ten boys participated in the AFL skills program. The program was run by the AFL (Sydney Swans) and supported by Western Suburbs Junior Australian Football Club. The program took place during period four Tuesdays for five weeks on the Western grass.

Over the course of five weeks, we learnt and developed different skills such as kicking, handpassing, marking and evading. We did so using drills, competitions and games, incorporating skills that we had learnt.

The skills we learnt are beneficial, providing us with necessary skills to play AFL for a local club or even in other sports.

How can parents help during stressful assessment times?

The second semester often heralds blocks of examinations or assessments for students. Some students cope well with the pressure and stress while others find it overwhelming. Of course, the more prepared students are, the less stress they are likely to experience. Encourage students to start their preparation for examinations and assessments early, in particular their study notes. If your student has examination blocks this semester, these tips will help you provide the support they need.

Commencing Term 3 2017 Homebush Boys High School is introducing a Technology Policy to provide students, staff and parents with clear guidelines regarding the safe and appropriate use of technology at School.

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is now a compulsory policy at Homebush Boys High School. All students are required to bring their devices charged and ready for use every day. The primary purpose is to assist the teaching and learning of our students and better prepare them for the paperless workplace and society of the twenty first century, into which they will enter upon leaving school. Other reasons are the economic savings, allowing funds to be diverted to better use, and environmental sustainability. Further information on device requirements is available in the BYOD Policy.

It was with a heavy heart that we had our last day of Tennis for Wednesday sport at Powel Creek Tennis Courts as we will be moving on to Summer sport next week. We gave Brett, our coach, a thank you card for all his hard work and effort with the group this semester. He organised regular competative games such as "Hot Shot" and "First to 21" which the students enjoyed immensely. His enthusiasm and encouragement on the court also meant that everybody's tennis game improved, too. We look forward to the next time we can play under his tutelage.
