Health Promoting School Nurse (HPSN)
Centralian Senior College has a strong commitment to the wellbeing of students. The College implements the principle that “Every teacher is a teacher of wellbeing (Mind Matters)”. A school based wellbeing team meets weekly to co-ordinate support for students who “are at academic risk due to a combination of significant social and emotional issues, attendance and behavior needs” (Student Wellbeing Team referral criteria, CSC). The Wellbeing and Behaviour Policy CENTRALIAN SENIOR COLLEGE December 2011 (see link) provides further information.
The main role of the HPSN is to foster/enhance the ability of College students to make informed choices about issues which affect their everyday lives (including drugs, alcohol, sexual and general health). This can occur on an individual, group or whole College community level and take many forms: classroom delivery with teachers, information for study and/or promotional activities for specific identified health issues (e.g. cancer awareness through Biggest Morning Tea). Invitations and referrals to government and non-government organisations to promote the health and wellbeing of College students are also made by the HPSN.

Dear parents & community members,
Term 2 has rapidly come to an end, with the majority of students successfully completing assessment tasks. Staff and students, both at Grevillea Drive & Alice Outcomes campuses, are to be congratulated on showing great resiliency to complete what has been a most disrupted semester of learning.
All families are asked to discuss the Year 12 Work Completion and Year 10 / 11 Semester 1 reports recently posted home. Let us all continue to work together to identify and implement improvement strategies, so students can achieve to even higher levels.
At the end of this term we wish all the best to Special Education Teacher Christine Burke who commences leave. In Semester Two we welcome Lucy Stewart and Marg McHugh returning from leave, and also welcome new English / Arts teacher Al Strangeways and new Business Manager Laura Annesley.
