NESA and new standards for HSC

Important information for parents of current year 9 students at NSW schools.

“Stronger HSC Standards reforms announced by the NSW Government require that from 2020, Year 12 students must reach a minimum standard of functional literacy and numeracy for award of the HSC credential.

Students can demonstrate they have met the standard by achieving a pass in new online reading, writing and numeracy tests, first available to students in Year 10 in 2018.

The standard is set at a practical level, mapped against the Australian Core Skills Framework Level 3 – a nationally agreed standard of functional literacy and numeracy…….

From this year, early identification and support for students most at risk of not achieving the minimum standard will be available through the NSW Literacy and Numeracy Strategy 2017-2020.”- Chief Executive Officer NESA (formerly BOSTES)

On Monday evening four of our School Representative Council (SRC) members, Carlton Williams, Wade Hughes, Charlotte Sommer and Maeve Grant, attended the Grafton Rotary clubs meeting to say thank you and pass on what they had learnt from attending the RYTS (Regional Youth Transition Seminar) in late December. Students recounted how they were taken out of their comfort zone through various team building and leadership challenges. South Grafton High School would like to thank President Russell Jones and the Rotary Club of Grafton for their continued support of our students, enabling them to attend such event. SRC-Rotary-17

Success at Qld Athletic Championships- Go the Blues!

Last weekend two of our students, Nathalie Avery and Natasha Rudder competed in the Qld Athletic Championships. Natasha was striving to get a qualifying time for the Australian Junior Athletic Championships to be held in Sydney at the end of February. Under trying conditions where the track was reversed because of strong headwinds, Natasha ran a great race but was unsuccessful in achieving the time required. She will now focus on the Oceania Regional Championships to be held in Fiji later in the year.

Nathalie Avery competed in the Girls U15 100m sprint. After a strong performance in her heat, Nathalie was the fastest qualifier for the final. In the final she had an excellent start and led the field to take first place, adding the Queensland Championship to her NSW championship. She will now focus on the NSW Little A’s State Championships to be held in mid-March, followed by the Australian Junior Athletic Championships to be held at the end of March. Erica and Megan Tillman will also be competing in these championships.
