At St Patrick’s we have an online student information management system, which is being implemented across all schools in the Maitland-Newcastle Diocese. Compass is a comprehensive system that will enable the school to effectively manage all information relating to your child/children and their school journey.Compass will offer a secure, yet easy, connection to essential information you need for your child. 

Compass Parent App

A parent app is available to allow you easy and secure access to Compass. This will become our primary source of information distribution.All notes and alerts will be sent through Compass. The types of information you will find in Compass includes: 

  • Monitoring your child’s attendance and enter in explanations for absences (under approvals)
  • View ‘My News’, a newsfeed of school announcements, newsletters, alerts and updates
  • View your child's schedule and the school calendar
  • Download and view your child's semester reports.

For all current and up-to-date information please download our Compass App and Compass for your computer and app.
