|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,
I would like to begin the first College Update for the year by thanking staff, students, and families for welcoming me into the Centralian Senior school community and Alice Springs. I have moved from Victoria to take on the role as principal and I am very grateful for the opportunity to lead the school community in living our school motto “Excellence in all we do.”
All staff will be participating in a professional learning day in Term 2, Friday 22 April. This day is a wonderful opportunity for staff to connect with their purpose and identify where we are in our continuous improvement cycle. We will be inviting student and parent representatives to participate and share the day with us.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the Annual General Meeting of our College Council held on 22 March. We have sent out details via Compass at the end of last week. This is a wonderful opportunity to become involved in our college community.
