Introduce Bangla at HSC in NSW
The Bangla-speaking community in NSW would like to strongly urge the NSW Government to introduce Bangla (Bengali) as an ATAR subject in NSW.
With over 100 candidates appearing in HSC in NSW each year, they are deprived of learning Bangla at senior high school level and taking the advantage of appearing at HSC with Bangla as an ATAR subject.
There are hundreds of students from this background at lower level classes, who have been learning Bangla under both the NSW school curriculum system as well as at community language schools.They deserve to be given the opportunity to further continue learning Bangla and take Bangla at HSC level as an ATAR subject.
