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.

Dear parents & community members,
We are over half way through Term 3, with numerous highly engaging and successful learning activities happening both inside and outside of classrooms, many highlighted in this newsletter.
Year 12 students are in the midst of completing final assessment tasks, with many preparing for exams. Please continue to support them as they conclude their secondary schooling.
During Term 3, much effort goes towards planning for the 2018 school year, including transition visits for Year 9 students, which are well under way, and 2018 subject selections by the current Year 10 & 11 students.
A 2018 Information Evening is being held at the college from 5.30pm to 7.00pm in the theatrette on Wednesday 20 September. All are welcome to come along, meet the staff and tour the facilities.
