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.
