CANVAS and Parent Portal (Parent Lounge) and Parent App (Orbit) – Chevalier College

CANVAS and Parent Portal (Parent Lounge) and Parent App (Orbit)

Canvas and Parent Portal (Parent Lounge) Access


Canvas, our Learning Management System (LMS), is a key part of every Chev student’s educational experience. Canvas provides students with learning resources, assessment tasks notifications and feedback, a mark-book for tracking progress, discussions, their home learning calendar, and much more.

Parents can effectively support their children by becoming ‘observers’. This process has been streamlined  to make access and use easier and we would encourage every parent to use their account so they can see what home learning (home work), assessment tasks and projects students need to undertake.

To access Canvas as a parent please click the button below. Step-by-step instructions are provided, with video tutorials.



We have launched our new parent portal. In the portal you can access the latest announcements, advise of absences, receive important alerts, easily approve excursion attendance (no more paper permission notes, access your child’s extracurricular details, access the school calendar and more. If you have any issues accessing the lounge, please refer to the trouble shooting guides below.

Further information – Parent Lounge and Parent Orbit (mobile app)

We have also launched a new mobile app called Parent Orbit.

Given the Lounge and the App hold the same information, you can choose to login to one, or the other, or both, depending on your personal preferences. The app enables you to access and complete time-sensitive tasks on the go.
