|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.

Another busy and successful semester of learning has concluded for our students. Congratulations to all students who have made progress and achievement with their learning goals.
All families are asked to discuss the Year 12 Work Completion and Year 10 / 11 Semester 1 reports recently posted home. Let us all continue to work together to identify and implement improvement strategies, so students can achieve to even higher levels.
On Monday 19 August (Week 5 Term 3), all staff will be participating in a Relationship Based Learning—Instructional Practices workshop focused on refining a shared and common understanding of what quality teaching and learning looks like at Centralian Senior College.
