|2014 Annual Report|
Centralian Senior College Council
The Centralian Senior College Administration is supported by the College Council. The Council is fully incorporated under the Northern Territory Education Act with a nominated membership of a minimum of six parents, with two students, one teacher representative, the Business Manager as Treasurer and the Principal as Executive Officer. A number of community members may also be seconded. This membership structure ensures that the council is composed of a range of key stakeholders.
The College Council meets monthly (during school terms) in the College’s Conference Room. Dates for meetings are published in the College newsletter. Election of parent representatives occurs at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in March each year. Membership is for a period of one or two years. Parents are welcome to contact members of the council or to attend meetings to discuss issues.
New College Constitution
With the new Education Act in place, all School/College Council Constitutions have required updating. Using the new model provided by the Department of Education, Councils were invited to make changes in the area of the composition of the Council as well as Council Objectives.
The Constitution will be ratified at the next Council meeting (Tuesday 27th Sept) at 5.30pm – it will be a Special General Meeting for this purpose.

Dear parents & community members,
We have just mailed Progress Reports home to families. These reports outlines students work habits and grades based on Term 1. These grades are not final, as the work that students complete in Term 2 will also contribute to the final grade that the student will receive in each class. Early next term we will hold Parent Teacher interviews, and we strongly encourage all parent/carers to come in with their young person and meet with teachers to discuss progress, address any challenges and set goals for the remainder of the term. Parent-Teacher interviews will be held on Thursday 29 April from 5.30 to 7pm. We will send more information home to families about this early next term.
I have been asked to step away from the school for a couple of weeks in order to backfill the Senior Director for School Improvement role, which will involve supporting Centralian Senior College as well as the other schools in the Alice Springs Region. Ms Hilary Snaize will be the Principal and Ms Glenda McCarthy has joined Ms Lucy Stewart as an Assistant Principal while I will be away. I return to Centralian Senior College in Week 3.
We hope our students and families have a great week away from school. School resumes for all students on Monday 19th April and we look forward to seeing everyone again on this day.
Paul van Holsteyn — Principal
