|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,
This term we have had three new staff members join our team, so welcome to John Chew, teaching Maths and Science, Emma Schuberg, teaching Art and PLP and our new College Counsellor, Rachael Howard.
We are almost half way through Term 3. Year 12 students continue to complete assessments and progress through the heavy workload to finish school. Families, teachers and other support networks are important at this time to promote a sense of wellbeing and the small steps to success as each task is successfully completed. Supports at this time can include optimising class time with teachers,
supported study at the Polly Farmer/study and enrichment centre from 3 – 5pm on Mondays through to Thursdays, extra support time provided by teachers, wellbeing support provided by mentors, tutorial teachers, wellbeing staff including our new school counsellor and so many others.
We would like to hear from all of you in the form of a school survey. Please take the time to provide us with valued feedback about the educational opportunities you would like to be available for young people in Alice Springs. The link to the survey is below and can be accessed for the next couple of weeks. The survey should take less than 10 minutes and we value your ideas about how we can improve our college.
