Bring Your Own Device 2021

BYOD is compulsory for year 7 to College 2. A device is a small laptop, tablet or Chromebook – not a phone! Every student from Year 7 to College 2 is required to bring a device to school every day. We don't encourage expensive devices. This link to our website provides info on suggested affordable devices: LBHS BYOD Website

We understand that it can be difficult to afford devices, especially if there are multiple children in the family. Please feel free to contact our CLO Ms Rosa-Maria Hormis to discuss this confidentially. Ms Hormis can offer information and assistance regarding loans, financial assistance and affordable devices.

SSW Individual Tennis Championships

It was great to see students back playing sport and representing Liverpool Boys at the Sydney South West Individual Tennis Championships held at Fairfield. Twenty-three talented tennis players in the Region attended the event, including Arshia Chekidehkhoon and Vladamir Vojnovic. The boys played with enthusiasm and found the experience rewarding and will be back bigger and better next year.

Year 7 Orientation 2022

Year 7 classes of 2022 (7L, 7J ,7C and 7AES) visited the library for orientation this term. Students went on a library tour and learnt about all the services they can access at our library. There were also raffle tickets draws with lucky winners. Students got to borrow books to start reading for enjoyment and received a library bag.

Welcome year 7 to LBHS! Have a wonderful year!

Renaissance Reading Program (AR) @LBHS

This year we are running the AR program for all students in years 7, 8 and couple of classes in years 9, 10 and one Big Picture class. This program is a computer-based program that is used to monitor and manage students’ independent reading practice at their own level and pace. It improves the literacy skills of students and fosters a love of lifelong reading. It is also a great tool for teachers to use because it provides them with reading progress reports to help them track students’ independent reading practice and progress. Students are expected to engage in daily sustained reading at school and at home for at least 20 minutes.

All students participating in this program completed the STAR Test to find out their reading levels and chronological ages. They started borrowing, reading, and quizzing. Happy Reading always!

Library Lovers' Day (LLD)

Library Lovers’ Day was celebrated every year on the 14th of February. LLD is celebrated every year and is an opportunity for people across Australia to show their love and appreciation for libraries.

Thank you to the big number of students who joined in the “Tell us why your love your library” competition.  Congratulations to Ismail (year 7) and Zakaria (year 12) on winning the 2022 Competition.

School Captain Message

Throughout my high schooling years at Liverpool Boys High School, I've seen, met, and known many of the great past school captains and leaders who have strived and actively/effectively changed and improved the school as strong and capable leaders. Personally, looking back I have learned a lot of skills and faced many experiences which exposed me to experience that took me out of my comfort zone, making me a better leader and a better role model for this fantastic school. As previously mentioned, I will use my influence of being 2022’s School Captain to the best of my ability to lead the school to more future opportunities, events, and much more, which is yet to come.


I’ve always been so keen for the position of School Captain, starting way back during my junior years. I used to think, and still do, of implementing more creative ideas and plans for the school to increase long term success. This might include implementing more school events such as Mother's and Father’s Day sales, sporting events, all the yearly events that occur and so much more - having students interact and engage more frequently and in a more decisive and enjoyable manner - having a good and strong connection with others within or even outside of our community where the name Liverpool Boys High School will become known.  


The starting string of this whole journey is getting along with a team of leaders from College and Big Picture, giving them the correct amount of training, they require to accomplish certain responsibilities throughout the school, as well as appropriate leaders. I want students to be able to; look behind them and see and see these leaders right behind them, supporting all the way. By having this brilliant team, I will give out my efforts to accommodate all possible ideas that students and staff would like to change or include to our school and follow it up to make it happen. In addition to this, every challenge and obstacle that would and will come in-front of us, we will put all our heads together and think of a logical and appropriate solution that would appeal both sides and then continue to move forwards as one. Even though we may come from different places and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one. Making Liverpool Boys High School one big family where everyone is supported by one another.

Sam's Journal

In February I attended a 4 week Pre-Apprenticeship Automotive Course at Miller High School through the EPP. I learnt how to change oils, wheels and how to check tyre grip. 

We worked on a car that was jacked up and had to change the wheels. The teacher showed a demonstration first and asked us to check if the car was sturdy. We then used an air gun to remove the bolts from the car, removed the wheel and pump it with air. We then placed the wheel back on the car and tightened it with the air gun. I also learnt how to change the oils, take an engine out of the car and take it apart. I really enjoyed this part and look forward to tuning engines.
