• Ensure that all summative assessments are provided in writing to students with due date, task requirements, word length, weighting and assessment criteria clearly indicated

• Explain to students the consequences of not completing homework on time and if appropriate impose and supervise catch-up sessions/detentions for students who do not comply

Parents are asked to support the College by:
• Facilitating a student’s sound study habits.

Dear parents & community members,
Welcome to all for the 2019 school year at Centralian Senior College. A special welcome to over 120 new students and their families. It has been a busy, positive start to the school year, with classes commencing learning activities during their first lessons on Day 1.
To all families and students, new and continuing, please come along to our week 3 Meet the Mentor / Teacher evening on Thursday 14 February, commencing 5:30pm in the theatrette. Following some general information about how our College functions and introductions of key support staff, families will be able to meet their child’s Mentors & Teachers and discuss programs for the upcoming year. There will also be year level specific presentations targeting additional important imformation. Join us afterwards in the foyer for a light supper—a sausage sizzle prepared by Girls Academy & Clontarf students.
