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,
Another busy and successful semester of learning has concluded for the majority of our students. Congratulations to students who have made significant progress.
On Friday 25 August, there will be a Whole School Professional Development Day which has been approved by College Council & the Department of Education. There will be no classes operating. All teaching staff will be participating in a Relationship Based Learning workshop focused on refining a shared and common understanding of what quality teaching and learning looks like at Centralian Senior College. Supported study will be available for Year 12 students in the Year 12 Study Centre on this day.
To all students, families and staff have a well earnt break – with Year 12 students continuing some study, revision and catch-up if needed, as they recharge their batteries for the run down the home straight of semester 2.
