A Heritage Community approach to cyber safety.

Protecting the next generation.

CONNECTIONS EVENING - 12/FEB, 5.30 - 8.30pm Read More Here

Digital technology has opened up a world of possibilities. At the same time, it has multiplied potential risks, that as a College we have greater awareness of through SAPOL presentations and specific information shared with our community.

Our goal is to protect every student from exposure to online threats – from inappropriate content to cyberbullying. Therefore, all the Heritage Colleges in Australia have partnered with “Family Zone” a leading provider of cyber safety.

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 enable us to protect your child whilst under our duty of care, they will need to have Mobile Zone installed on any device with internet access that they bring onto the school site. This software integrates seamlessly with School Zone and Home Zone. With your participation, this will then complete the circle of safety for your child.

We have arranged an account for you to access. This is available by the "Log in" button below. You will then need to activate your personal account when you receive your e-mail from Family Zone. This will enable you to set up your child with Mobile Zone so they can have the privilege of bringing a device into school from home.

All school owned devices will have School Zone and Mobile Zone installed which will work regardless of which filtering software you have at home

However, Family Zone allows you to apply age appropriate parental controls on every device your child has access to and works seamlessly with Home Zone, School Zone and Mobile Zone making it a one stop solution. Also, Family Zone can provide access to advice from Cyber Safety Experts so you are kept fully informed and can confidently traverse the ever-changing options available.

Only by working together in a strong parent/College partnership can we meet our shared digital duty of care – at school, at home and everywhere in between, to help protect the next generation of our students from the potential risks of the internet.
