A school community approach to cyber safety.

Working with families to drive smart, safe and responsible online behaviour

A message from John XXIII

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. The College has partnered with Australia’s leading provider of cyber safety and digital-awareness services, Family Zone. As part of our contract negotiations until 2020, we have managed to secure a number of Family Zone Accounts (Family Packs) which we are offering to John XXIII College families for free. 

For more information on this, please see the  "Cost & Guidelines" on this website.

By setting up a private Family Zone account, you can apply age-appropriate parental controls on every device your child has access to, in any location.

You can set up your Family Zone account today by clicking "sign up" below. 

You can log in to your Family Zone account via "My account" (top right hand corner of this website)
