Bullying and Harassment
Bullying and harassment involves a person or group using unwanted and unwelcome behavior to hurt, upset, scare or shame another person. At Centralian Senior College we believe that all staff and students have the right to work in a safe environment where they are able to develop their talents, interests and goals without being subjected to intimidation, bullying or harassment. All reports of bullying are taken seriously and thoroughly investigated.
A student pamphlet detailing the College’s policy, response and procedures to incidents of bullying and harassment is provided to all students as part of education around bullying and cyberbullying.

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, Janette Gunner. Belinda Harding is the staff representative, 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 March from 5:30pm in the conference room – parents are welcome to attend Council meetings.
