Mobile Phone Policy
Centralian Senior College is aware that mobile phones have a significant impact on our students’ lives and that advances in technology make them far more than just a phone. The school understands this technology is part of our world and parents often support their young people having mobile phones for safety reasons. Student responsibility for the appropriate use of personal electronic devices at school is required at all times and must be in accordance with, and reflect our college values and expectations. This mobile phone policy aims to promote a safe environment for both teachers and students. Whilst mobile phones are the key focus of this policy, any device that has access to social media, or has the capability to capture images or video, is also covered in this policy.
Should a student choose to bring their phone to school, they do so at their own risk and must follow the expectations set out in this policy with regards to its use. The college will not be responsible for lost, stolen or damaged phones.

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.
