Responsibilities of Parties
Teachers are required to:
• Ensure that each student is issued with a subject Assessment Plan by Week 4 of each course outlining formative and summative assessments appropriate to the subject and year level
• Ensure that all summative assessments are provided in writing to students with due date, task requirements, word length, weighting and assessment criteria clearly indicated
• Negotiate with students if homework cannot be completed by the due date (due to ill health, family/personal problems, other extraordinary commitments and/or extenuating circumstances)
• Explain to students the consequences of not completing homework on time and if appropriate impose and supervise catch-up sessions/detentions for students who do not comply
• Contact a parent/guardian by telephone or in writing when a student repeatedly fails to complete homework and each time a summative assessment task is not completed by the due date.
Students are required to:
• Allocate appropriate time to undertake personal study and complete all homework as set course.
• Independently and regularly revise work covered in class.
• Negotiate prior to the due date with each teacher if tasks cannot be completed by the due date.
Students should also:
• Learn to plan their work taking into account family, sporting, cultural and/or employment commitments and social activities as well as the commitment required for assessment timelines.
• Recognise that some subjects have more homework demands than others but that one subject should not receive so much time that others are neglected.
• Discuss any problems they have with homework or study plans with an appropriate person (e.g. parents, Mentors, subject teachers, Career Advisers, Managers, an Assistant Principal and / or the Principal).
Parents are asked to support the College by:
• Facilitating a student’s sound study habits.
• Providing notice to a subject teacher (by telephone, email or note) of any reason's for a student’s homework not being completed by the due date.
Dear parents & community members,
At our recent Awards Evening and Year 12 Formal, many references were made and thanks given to our extraordinary staff by students, parents and myself for their dedication and devotion in continuing to provide high quality learning opportunities for our young people.
Students are also to be congratulated on their efforts throughout the year. We wish our graduating Year 12 students well with their future endeavours and ask them to keep in touch as they move into the next phase of their lives.
Early in 2020 we will send out Day 1 commencement information including details of the use of Back to School Vouchers, College Dress Code (minimum standard of College polo shirt) and processes of how eligible Year 12 students may collect their student laptop in the week prior to commencement of classes.
To all members of Centralian Senior College community, enjoy the festive season and have a restful & safe holiday break as we look forward to building on the successes of 2018 in 2019.
Tony Collins — Principal
