|2014 Annual Report|
Centralian Senior College Council
The Centralian Senior College Administration is supported by the College Council. The Council is fully incorporated under the Northern Territory Education Act with a nominated membership of a minimum of six parents, with two students, one teacher representative, the Business Manager as Treasurer and the Principal as Executive Officer. A number of community members may also be seconded. This membership structure ensures that the council is composed of a range of key stakeholders.
The College Council meets monthly (during school terms) in the College’s Conference Room. Dates for meetings are published in the College newsletter. Election of parent representatives occurs at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in March each year. Membership is for a period of one or two years. Parents are welcome to contact members of the council or to attend meetings to discuss issues.
New College Constitution
With the new Education Act in place, all School/College Council Constitutions have required updating. Using the new model provided by the Department of Education, Councils were invited to make changes in the area of the composition of the Council as well as Council Objectives.
The Constitution will be ratified at the next Council meeting (Tuesday 27th Sept) at 5.30pm – it will be a Special General Meeting for this purpose.

Dear parents & community members,
Our 2018 school year has had a busy start. Thanks to all members of the College community for your support of our recent Whole School Professional Development Day. Staff worked with visiting Senior Years Team curriculum officers to ensure their learning plans and associated assessment tasks supported students to optimise their achievement in Stage 2 / Year 12 courses. Professional learning from this day will flow through to Year 10 and Stage 1 courses.
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.
Work Completion Reports for all students are being posted home with this newsletter. These reports show whether students are up to date with completion and submission of their work and the standard achieved. Please discuss these with your child and contact your child’s mentor or subject teacher if you have any queries. Mentors are discussing these work completion reports with students, in their role of monitoring academic progress.
