KB0043 – Registering, Logging In & Adding Students

Step 1: Create an Account

  • Fill out the details for creating your portal account, including a valid email address and password for accessing the portal after you have created your account
  • Click ‘Create Your Account’ when you are finished entering your details


The portal is best viewed with the Google Chrome browser. If you are having problems viewing the site with another browser please try using Google Chrome which you can download for free at https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser

There are known issues with the Firefox browser so please avoid using that browser when logging into the portal.

After the initial step of creating your account, the address for the portal becomes https://sentral.oakhill.nsw.edu.au/portal

Step 2: Login to the Portal

  • Login to the portal using the username (valid email address) and password which you chose when created your account.


If you have forgotten your password or you simply want to change your password, click on the red-coloured link at the bottom of the login window which says ‘Forgot Password?’ (see screenshot below).


Enter your email address in the space provided then click on the ‘Reset Password’ button and you will be sent an email with instructions on how to reset your password.


Step 3: Add Access Key(s)

  • For each child you have at the College, enter the access key that was sent you by email.


Every child has their own, unique student access key. So, for example, if you have three children at Oakhill, the school will send you three separate emails with an individual (and unique) access code for each child. In this example, a parent would then add each of these keys to gain portal access for all three children.

Access keys are sent by email to your email address in the school’s database. It’s important, therefore, that you keep our records up-to-date by notifying us of any changes to your email address. The best way to do that is to send an email to registrar@oakhill.nsw.edu.au giving details of your change of email address.

Sometimes spam filters can mistake legitimate email as spam and consign it to the junk box. If you have not received an email from the school with details of your access keys please look in your junk box in case it has been put in there by your spam filter.

Contact the school’s hotline number (9634 0837) for further assistance with access keys or any other matters related to the parent portal. In your message, clearly state

  • who you are (first name and last name)
  • the name and academic year of at least one of your children at the school and
  • your ‘phone number.

A member of the school’s IT team will call to assist you as soon as they can.
