our story

about the school

At PASS we provide an engaging learning environment that meets the needs of all students through the provision of high-quality teaching, learning programs and pathways in a supportive setting.

Port Augusta Secondary School (PASS) was established in 1995, through the amalgamation of Augusta Park High School and Port Augusta High School.

In 2010 PASS saw the amalgamation of the Stirling (senior school) and Seaview (middle school) campuses and in 2012, transferred to our current location on Stirling Road

Some major works were conducted in 2011 prior to all students transferring to the current Stirling Road site in 2012. Since this time the school has seen further improvements with the addition of the Pichi Richi Trade Training Centre, focussing on pathways into Electro Technology, Engineering and the Automotive fields.

As of 2019, some further upgrades included a purpose-built STEM facility and curriculum development, 2 new Visual Art studios and the Clontarf Foundation building supporting the Foundation’s new program at PASS.

2021 has seen the construction of a major facility to support the move of year 7 students to a secondary setting. Two new Food & Hospitality kitchens were also included in this development.

Outdoor space for students now includes access to Braddock Oval and the school gymnasium during break times, which was previously not possible. The area has been fenced to provide a visual boundary for staff, students and the wider community.
