Centralian Senior College asks parents to make a yearly contribution of $310 per student in order to provide students with additional resources to enhance their education. In most subjects additional material costs or outside facility hire fees are paids by the college. For example consumables for Art and Home Economics, entrance fees to Physical Education activities.
NT Government Back to School Voucher
The NT Government provides every student with a Back to School voucher each year which may be used by parents for the payment of extra materials or for the purchase of items such as calculators and art resource packs. The voucher may not be used for the parent contribution.
Payment of parent contributions can be made by cash, cheque (made payable to Centralian Senior College), EFTPOS, Bankcard, Mastercard, Visacard or by direct deposit as directed on the invoice.
Excursions & Performances
Excursions, field trips and / or performances are an essential part of some courses and as such attendance and participation in these activities is compulsory. In most cases an assessment task/s is based on the excursion. Notification of the costs for these excursions and activities will be provided by the subject teacher to students when beginning courses. A charge may also be levied for any non-compulsory camps, excursions, sporting trips and performances attended by students.
Parents are required to complete all necessary forms and to provide payment prior to students travelling on excursions. Excluding independent students no student will be permitted to attend an excursion without authorisation or pre-payment from a parent / carer.
Some courses at Centralian Senior College involve compulsory excursions and / or out-of-class activities which students must complete and for which students must meet the costs. Excursion information for a course will be provided by the course teacher.
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.
