SEQTA Engage
SEQTA
John Wollaston has embraced the digital learning management system known as SEQTA. SEQTA is used across the Primary and Secondary Schools and parents and guardians of students in Pre-Primary to Year 12 have been given access to this system through SEQTA Engage.

It is an expectation of the School that all parents/guardians access the SEQTA Engage portal at least once a week to review their child’s progress and respond to staff communications. SEQTA Engage allows parents/guardians to see assessment results and teacher feedback for their child/ren. Teachers use SEQTA’s Direqt Message function to email parents/guardians regarding academic or pastoral care concerns. Through SEQTA Engage parents can also see their child’s attendance history and address unexplained absences. Academic Reports will only be available through SEQTA.

Please take the time to log into SEQTA Engage and update yourself with any outstanding messages and results that you have not seen. If you require assistance to join SEQTA Engage or navigate the system, please contact Karen Ayres at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
