A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Athelstone School

Athelstone School want to ensure that students are protected on the internet, no matter what device they are on or what source of internet they are using.  Therefore we have arranged for parents to have access to Family Zone’s app.

Athelstone families with children in years 5, 6 and 7 are entitled to a Family Zone Family Pack. A Family Pack will cover 3 children & 6 devices. There is no cost to the parents for the first year (from time of activating). After this time, parents can continue to protect their children for the special education price of $59pa.

Athelstone families with children in years K- 4 can purchase a Family Zone Family Pack for the special education price of $59pa

For more information please see the "Cost &/or Guidelines" section of this website.

You would have received an activation email from Family Zone.  Please click on the activation link in that email for your free Family Zone app or click "Sign Up" below for the $59 Family Pack!
