Arrival and Departure Times
The College is open from 8:00am to 4:21pm each day with the Library available for extended hours in the evenings Tuesday to Thursday. Start and finish times for students vary according to individual timetables with students having classes from 8:30am to 2.50pm. Students are expected to attend all timetabled classes for enrolled courses including Mentoring lessons and assemblies.
All students are expected to attend classes punctually, to be prepared for each class by bringing the necessary equipment and by having completed the required homework. Students may be expected to work on their own or to engage in group activities but each student must submit his/her own work for summative assessment. Please refer to the Centralian Senior College Assessment Policy for more information on summative assessment requirements.
Assemblies are held on a regular basis throughout each term in the Theatrette. It is either a whole College or combined year level meeting where information is shared between staff and students, presentations are made, special achievements are celebrated and special activities held.
All Centralian Senior College students are individually mentored as they undertake the timetabled coaching program course, comprising personal development and pastoral care. The Mentor offers guidance to students concerning wellbeing, appropriate behaviour, attitude and dress, oversees attendance and maintains communications between students and the College. The Mentoris the primary communication link between the College and parents/carers. Each Mentor coordinates the official assessment reports for each student and generally supports each student in his/her care in achieving their goals. Meetings between Mentors and students occur on a regular basis as timetabled.
Dear parents & community members,
The end of a busy, productive and challenging Term 1 has arrived with staff and students taking a well deserved break.
Students have been reminded of our heading towards young adult behaviours in allowing students to bring mobile phones to College and only use them during recess and lunch break times. During class time, College expectations are that mobile phones are to be away and on silent during class / lesson / learning time, including change of lesson, unless the classroom teacher has given specific instruction to utilise student phones during learning activities.
Term 1 Progress Reports for your student have been posted home. Please discuss these with your child and come along to the Parent / Student / Teacher interview evening on Thursday 26 April 5:30 —7pm, to discuss how our young people can achieve to even higher levels. Looking forward to many positive discussions at this important event.
