Access your child’s academic reports
Resolve your child’s absences
Manage Pastoral Care activities for your child
Access payments and tours through a secure portal page

The SEQTA Engage app can be downloaded to any IOS or Android device. Downloading the app will allow you to receive push notifications from SEQTA Engage or simply access your portals through your mobile device.
TOURS AND EXCURSIONS
Accepting tours and excursions can be done through SEQTA Engage. This video takes you through the process of viewing outstanding tours, accepting or declining tours and making payments if required for students to attend excursions.
SETTING UP YOUR DASHBOARD
The Dashboard is where you can see notes, pastoral care details, student timetables and unresolved absences. To get these to appear on your dashboard, click on the "Options Selected" tab, and tick the boxes of those items you want to show on your dashboard.
BOOKING A PARENT TEACHER INTERVIEW ONLINE
On the SEQTA Engage welcome screen you will find a "Parent Teacher Interview" link. Once you click on this link you will be taken to the secure Parent Lounge and will need your Parent Lounge username and password. Your username for the Lounge is your Parent Code (which can be found on your Tuition Fees account). If you need any assistance with booking a parent teacher interview, please contact us.
EMAILING TEACHERS VIA SEQTA ENGAGE
Parents have the ability to email teachers via SEQTA Engage. This can be done through the student timetable by clicking on the class. A pop-up box will appear with an email option.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEQTA ENGAGE AND TASS PARENT LOUNGE?
SEQTA Engage is a learning management system that incorporates attendance, pastoral care and timetabling.
The TASS Parent Lounge is a secure platform that hosts payments, excursion acceptance, booking of Parent Teacher interviews and where you can make change of details.
Both platforms can be accessed securely through the SEQTA Engage site or app.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT PASSWORD SECURITY
TASS Parent Lounge will still be used for payments, excursions, booking parent-teacher interviews and updating details. For security reasons, your username and password for the Parent Lounge will be separate from your login details for SEQTA Engage. Password management best practice suggests making login details different for every platform and we encourage using a different password and username for SEQTA Engage. Both Parent Lounge and SEQTA Engage have a process for forgotten passwords that can be accessed from each login. If you have forgotten your username or need any other assistance with logging on to either of these platforms, please contact us.
