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,
We hope you and your family continue to be well. Students, staff and families are to be congratulated on their resiliency and flexibility in continuing student learning, either through attendance at school or following our learning at home arrangements over the last few weeks.
With there being no recorded cases of community transmission of the Coronavirus in the NT, we will be transitioning back to face to face teaching and learning classes for all year levels at the beginning of next week.
From the start of Week 2 Term 2 - Monday 27 April 2020, all Year 10 – 12 classes will recommence face to face lessons at their usual scheduled lesson times. Some room changes will be required and some practical learning activities will not occur or be modified.
We encourage all students to attend in person and participate in all classes, however we also understand that some families will want their children to remain home. Students staying at home should continue to maintain regular contact with their teachers and College staff. This will assist them to progress their learning and not fall behind in their studies. Parents are requested to notify the College of students staying at home via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, text message: 0427 135 122 or phone: 8958 5000, as per usual student attendance / absentee procedures.
