2018 New Student Information System - COMPASS

In 2018 Aquinas Catholic College is undertaking a new student information system called Compass.  It is a cloud-based program that will be implemented in all Sydney Catholic Schools, over the next 3 years.  At the beginning of this year we will be opening the Student and Parent Portals and you will have access to parts of Compass. Throughout 2018 you will be sent instructional guides and information about Compass via the College newsletter.  

 

The Compass Parent Portal is an integrated, online portal that allows you to access up-to-date and meaningful information about our school and your child's progress. Compass includes many different features, including the ability to:

  • ​Monitor your child's attendance, and enter an explanation for absence or lateness

  • Communicate with your child's teachers

  • Update your family contact information

  • View your child's timetable and the school calendar

  • Monitor your child's homework and assessment tasks

  • Download and view your child's Semester Reports and Progress Reports

  • Book Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences

For more information please read the brochure, "Welcome to Compass - a guide for Parents and Families" found here: tinyurl.com/SecondaryParentBrochure
