The move to a single sign on system in 2017

The School currently testing a new system that will link all the current tools, and parents will only need one username and password in order to access this. We expect this single-sign on system to be ready in Term 2, 2017 and look forward to providing you with more information in due course.

SEQTA Learn (Student Gateway)

SEQTA Learn (previously known as Coneqt-S) is available as a link through the white Portals button at the top left hand corner of the website. All Secondary School students (from Years 7 to 12) have already been issued with their log in details. Students can view their timetable and course outlines for every subject. Some teachers are also providing links to homework and other resources for students through SEQTA Learn. Test and assesment results are also available through SEQTA Learn. Students are able to set themselves goals and monitor their own progress. We encourage parents to ask their children to log in to SEQTA Learn and give them a quick tour of what is available to students through the site.
