A message from the Principal

Heritage College Sydney is committed to our duty of care for students’ safety and well-being. We are proud to announce that the Heritage Colleges have partnered with *Family Zone,* which is Australia’s leading provider of cyber safety and security services to schools and parental control products for parents.

Family Zone has 3 components: (a) School Zone, (b) Mobile Zone and (c) Home Zone that enables students to be safe at school, at home and most importantly, "on the go" where they have internet access.

To complete the circle of safety for your child, we require your support and participation. We will be setting up your account with Family Zone, free of charge this year so that you can apply age-appropriate parental controls on every device your child can access, in any location.

Your child will need to have Mobile Zone installed on any device with internet access, that they bring to school from the start of Term 3 2018.

We are arranging an account for you to access. This will be available by the "Log in" button below. You will need to activate your personal account when you receive your e-mail from Family Zone.
All school-owned devices will have School Zone and Mobile Zone installed, which will work regardless of which filtering software you have at home.

We are committed to ensuring our students get the very best education and in today’s fast moving times, technology is a key component. But we also know that technology is exposing our children to risks. The Heritage Colleges' community is choosing to step-up to these challenges and we do so with full confidence that we will receive the support of our parents/carers.
