Health Promoting School Nurse (HPSN)
Centralian Senior College has a strong commitment to the wellbeing of students. The College implements the principle that “Every teacher is a teacher of wellbeing (Mind Matters)”. A school based wellbeing team meets weekly to co-ordinate support for students who “are at academic risk due to a combination of significant social and emotional issues, attendance and behavior needs” (Student Wellbeing Team referral criteria, CSC). The Wellbeing and Behaviour Policy CENTRALIAN SENIOR COLLEGE December 2011 (see link) provides further information.
The main role of the HPSN is to foster/enhance the ability of College students to make informed choices about issues which affect their everyday lives (including drugs, alcohol, sexual and general health). This can occur on an individual, group or whole College community level and take many forms: classroom delivery with teachers, information for study and/or promotional activities for specific identified health issues (e.g. cancer awareness through Biggest Morning Tea). Invitations and referrals to government and non-government organisations to promote the health and wellbeing of College students are also made by the HPSN.
