Since "thirty past five" is incorrect for "five-thirty", it should change to (the same as the others) "five-thirty". If you would want the word "past" in those other sentences, then "half past five" is also correct.

Do you mean the meeting/class/game ends at 5:30, or it was supposed to end at 5:30 and went a little over the scheduled time?

Always five-thirty, never thirty past five. You can have "half past five" which means the same thing but not "thirty past".
