Canvas is the HSPA learning management system. This comprehensive eLearning environment provides students with a consistent online learning experience. Advantages include easy access to curriculum resources, assessment tasks and feedback. Students can participate in collaborative, engaging, multimedia based learning experiences. Canvas integrates seamlessly with the Office 365 suite meaning students can store their work in the cloud and submit to Canvas. Canvas makes management of student learning requirements much easier, providing online personalised calendars, learning agendas and To Do lists.
Canvas is also the preferred learning management system for many of the world's top universities. HSPA students will enter tertiary education with an excellent understanding of the Canvas learning environment, providing a smooth transition to university-style education.
Parents have access to HSPA Canvas in the role of 'Observer'. This provides outstanding transparency for all members of the student's learning team. Parents can see, in real time, teacher's feedback to students, marks for online assignments and the work students are completing in each course as well as all upcoming learning requirements for all subjects.
The following resources will assist parents to use Canvas when supporting student learning.
While the best way to view Canvas is on a full sized computer, if you're looking for a more streamlined, efficient way to monitor and support your students learning, the Canvas Parent App is a light version of Canvas. The Parent App provides an efficient view of calendar and announcements at glance. See this page for more information on the app.
Parents can now access Canvas via the Sentral Parent Portal - click the link under Applications or the Canvas Parent Access link on the Technology Access page of this site. The first time you access you need to click forgot password as we cannot sync the data for security reasons.
Our technology team are contactable via email address above - please do not telephone the school with technology issues, as it is more than likely that we are on class and unavailable.
If you have used the guides above and cannot gain access, please use the following form to let us know you are having issues. You will be required to sign in as a student using your school email address (firstname.lastname@example.org)
