At Point Cook Senior we are pleased to introduce a service for families called ‘Compass’.  Compass is the primary means of communication between the school and home.  Parents are able to login to Compass below:


What is Compass?

Compass allows the College to communicate more efficiently with parents. Using Compass you will be able to access the following:

  • Email address and mobile phone number – update your details through the portal.  The details listed will be used to send emails and sms alerts.
  • Attendance – view your child’s attendance online, approve absences and indicate future absences.
  • School photos – can be ordered online through the Compass portal.
  • Teacher email – parents can email their child’s teachers directly.
  • Parent/student/teacher interviews – make appointments with teachers.
  • News feed – the school will post news to parents to remind you about events and activities at the school.  Your news feed will be customized showing only the information relevant to you and your children.
  • Excursions – approve your child’s participation in excursions and other special events.
  • Reports - Progress Reports and Semester Reports will be made available online through the Compass portal.

Accessing Compass

Compass is a web-based system that is accessible on any modern web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc) or by using the Compass iOS or Andriod apps.
