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,
On the 29th October we celebrated World Teachers’ Day and acknowledged the expertise and efforts of all our staff. Our college nominated Mrs Eunice De Kock for the secondary teacher of the year award and she was the Central Regional winner. Congratulations to Mrs De Kock!
Centralian Senior College invites all families, students and staff to join us for an evening of entertainments and enjoyment of our vibrant arts program at the 2021 Twilight Festival on 18 November from 6 - 8pm. A family favourite, come along and enjoy some music, art and food on the front lawns.
The last Year 12 exams took place this week and finals tasks are still being completed. The Year 11 classes are undergoing moderation of all subjects and students and staff are working hard to finish the year strongly. The year 10s have just completed another VET block week to grow their skills and gain competencies. They are working to complete their PLP, the first subject in the pattern to completing their NTCET.
As we approach the end of the school year, there are many events coming up to celebrate and recognise all the hard work completed by students, including the 2021 Awards Evening and Year 12 students formal.
