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,
We have just mailed Progress Reports home to families. These reports outlines students work habits and grades based on Term 1. These grades are not final, as the work that students complete in Term 2 will also contribute to the final grade that the student will receive in each class. Early next term we will hold Parent Teacher interviews, and we strongly encourage all parent/carers to come in with their young person and meet with teachers to discuss progress, address any challenges and set goals for the remainder of the term. Parent-Teacher interviews will be held on Thursday 29 April from 5.30 to 7pm. We will send more information home to families about this early next term.
I have been asked to step away from the school for a couple of weeks in order to backfill the Senior Director for School Improvement role, which will involve supporting Centralian Senior College as well as the other schools in the Alice Springs Region. Ms Hilary Snaize will be the Principal and Ms Glenda McCarthy has joined Ms Lucy Stewart as an Assistant Principal while I will be away. I return to Centralian Senior College in Week 3.
We hope our students and families have a great week away from school. School resumes for all students on Monday 19th April and we look forward to seeing everyone again on this day.
