A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Bayside Christian College

Digital technology has opened up a world of possibilities for our children. At the same time, it has multiplied potential risks.

Our goal is to protect every student from exposure to online threats - from inappropriate content to cyberbullying. That’s why we’ve partnered with Australia’s leading provider of cyber safety and digital-awareness services, Family Zone.

All families from Bayside Christian College are entitled to a Family Pack.

On Feb 6th 2019, families would have received an email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account.
Simply click the link in that email to activate your Family Zone account & follow the prompts.

Please see "costs & guidelines" for more info
