Multiculturism & Anti-racism Awareness

The Homebush Boys school staff work with our identified students and their families to set goals and update their individual learning plans at the start of the year.

Multicultural and anti-racism education promotion and understanding of the many different cultures and backgrounds are celebrated at our school. Knowing our students by valuing their cultural background and bringing that into the school can be seen via the many celebrations such as Multicultural Day, Harmony Day and our Anti-Discrimination Day which encourages a greater understanding of the diversity that exists at Homebush Boys High School. We have Ms Usha Deo; a trained ARCO and she has brought awareness of her role in promoting anti-racism and harnessing tolerance across all races and backgrounds at our school. Ms Deo is also the Strathfield Network Coordinator who organises once per term Network Meetings for all ARCO members to meet and work to promote anti-racism education, support complaint-handling and monitor incidents of racism.

Homebush is situated on the traditional lands of the Wann clan, known as the Wann-gal. The lands of the Wann-gal stretched along the southern shore of the Parramatta River between Cockle Bay (Cadi-gal land) and Rose Hill (Burramatta-gal land). We acknowledge and honour Aboriginal People who have cared for country at least 70,000 years. The Homebush Boys community thanks these Traditional Owners and we pay our respects to their Ancestors and Elders-past, present and emerging. As a school full of many nations, united as one we focus on excellence and success while caring for the land on which we live and learn.

We continue to hold the ethos of acceptance and understanding at our school via peer support mentors which lead the younger members of our school and maintain positive relationships with teachers, students and the wider school community.
