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,
Term 2 is already nearly half way over with students engaging in a wide range of learning activities. Mid-term work completion reports for Year 10 –12 students have been posted home. Please discuss these with your student and follow-up with teachers any issues, so that student achievement is optimised and all are well prepared for upcoming exams.
Congratulations Juice and Ceenah on winning Best Band and Best Solo Artist at the 2018 NT Battle of the School Bands recently. Ceenah also took out Runner Up for Best Song. Well done to everyone involved, Juice (Felise Naufahu, Ricky Bloomfield, Tjamiwa Presley, Shawn Foster and Brodie Roesch) and Ceenah (Riana Naufahu), all head back to Darwin this weekend to perform alongside national artists
including Paul Kelly, at the Territory’s biggest music event, BASS IN THE GRASS. What an outstanding opportunity to continue the
development of their musical talents.
Great thanks and congratulations to families of students and College staff who have taught, assisted and supported Juice & Riana over the last years, in particular Music Teacher Genevieve O’Loughlin & Rob Ward.
