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.

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,
Our 2019 school year has had a busy start. Thanks to all members of the College community for your support College at our well attended Meet the Mentor/Teacher Evening in Week 3 and of our recent Whole School Professional Development Day last week. Staff worked with visiting Senior Years Team curriculum officers and colleagues from other local schools to ensure their learning plans and associated assessment tasks supported students to optimise their engagement and achievement in Stage 2 / Year 12 courses. Professional learning from this day will flow through to Year 10 and Stage 1 courses.
Thanks also to parent support at our College Council AGM. Parents Tanya White, Lauren Winter and Tanya Becker were elected to Council, joining continuing members Liz Hay and Janette Gunner. Belinda Harding is the staff representative and Fred Richardson continues as Invited Member, with Student Representative Council members sharing the role of representing students at monthly Council meetings. The next meeting is Tuesday 30 April from 5:30pm in the conference room – parents are welcome to attend Council meetings.
