Compass is our online portal where parents and families can access information about their child as a learner. Families are provided with a unique username and password that enables them to be part of the two-way communication with the school.


Compass can be accessed on the internet at, and is also available as an app for some smartphones and tablets – search for ‘Compass School Manager’ in the applicable App Store.

Logging in to Compass provides a quick and easy way to do a range of things, including notifying the school about an absence for your child, accessing their Semester report and seeing results of many of our assessment tasks conducted throughout the year. Bookings for Student Led Conferences will also be made in Compass, with information provided closer to the relevant dates.
