A school community approach to cyber safety.

Because they're worth it.

As technology continues to increase and assert itself into our everyday life, managing internet, device usage and safety can be both rewarding and, on occasions, challenging experiences. At Donvale Christian College we endeavour to provide tools to assist parents to, in turn, help their children in being responsible with their technology and managing their time effectively.

Whilst we encourage children to be independent and think critically, we also want to ensure they are safe while online and using devices and internet access appropriately. Supporting you in your parenting role as well as partnering in your child’s welfare is important to us and, as such, we recommend the Family Zone ecosystem to keep your child safe at school, at home and out and about.

Children are continuing to spend time with technology in multitudes of ways and sometimes this can be difficult to manage. However, and in working together as a community, we can effectively guide and assist our kids in making responsible choices in life. By continuing to raise awareness around the potential dangers of the online world, we can create a positive, engaged and responsible generation for the future.

"Parents have a right to know where their children go and who they communicate with. Parents whose family have been devastated by online issues who now use monitoring or filtering software would do anything to turn back time . They have told me so. Family Zone is an essential piece of the cyber safety formula."
