Our College already has excellent safeguards for students who bring their own laptop to school, but any device that has 3G/4G capabilities (such as mobile phones) do not come under the College’s protections.
In response, we have teamed up with Family Zone to protect all mobile devices brought onto campus, which will cover families who have children in Years 5 to 12. This coincides with the College One to One program, which impacts students in Year 5 to 12.
From 2019, parents with at least one child in this age bracket will be able to access a Family Zone's Family Pack. This will be provided by the school, with no out of pocket cost to parents.
In early 2019, parents with at least one child in Years 5 to 12 will receive an activation email from Family Zone for their free Family Pack.
If these parents would like to purchase Family Zone before 2019, you can do so by simply click ing "sign up" below, for the special education price of $59pa.
If you have children in Kindergarten to year 4 and would like to access Family Zone, you can purchase a Family Pack for the special education price of $59pa. Simply click "sign up" below.
