Parent Teacher Interviews

HSPA Secondary Parent Teacher Interviews (PTI) are conducted both ONSITE and ONLINE.

This is to cater for our large drawing area. We understand that it can be difficult for families who live a distance from the school to attend onsite.

An email will be sent close to PTI dates, to notify parents when they can commence booking. Our community traditionally books very early, so it is recommended that you book early to ensure maximum flexibility & availability of times.

Go to HSPA Sentral to book interview times with applicable teachers. This can also be completed using the Sentral Portal App.  Sentral Parent Portal instructions for booking interviews are here, if required

 

ONSITE PTIs

Are booked via the Sentral Portal. These are held in the HSPA Hall. We ask that parents are mindful to adhere to their alloted time slots, to ensure that other families are not disadvantaged.

Yr 7 to 12 - ONSITE PTIs

 

ZOOM / ONLINE PTIs

Are also booked via the Sentral Portal. These are via Zoom. Detailed instructions on how to access these are below. We ask that parents are mindful to adhere to their alloted time slots, to ensure that other families are not disadvantaged.

Instructions prior to parent/ teacher Zoom interview: 

  1. Create a Zoom account if you don’t have one (this is free), ensure your username contains your surname to make it easy for teachers to identify you. You may not be admitted into an interview if your Zoom username does not easily identify you. Follow this link to setup a Zoom account.
  2. For official HSPA Parent Teacher Zoom Interviews - Go to HSPA Sentral to book interview times with applicable teachers. This can also be completed using the new Sentral Portal App.  Sentral Parent Portal instructions for booking interviews are here, if required
  3. Go to the Staff Zoom Link Directory below to find links to all teachers. These same links will work anytime you’d like to have a video conference meeting with a teacher.
  4. We recommend you right button click on the teacher's name to 'copy link address', then paste the links for all applicable teachers in a separate document. This will speed up the process of switching between interviews on the PTI evening.
