Minimum standards required for awarding Higher School Certificate

Bass High School staff are actively engaged in ensuring that our students meet the new minimum standards required for the awarding of the Higher School Certificate (HSC). 

From 2020, students will need to demonstrate suitable standards in reading, writing and numeracy before they can be awarded the HSC. 

There are several ways to pass these skills tests starting with the Year 9 National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN). 

Bass High School will be providing more opportunities during the year.

Our first testing session saw all 18 of our students pass at their first attempt. Those requiring support will receive it during the year from the mathematics, english and learning support faculties.
