A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Kingsway Christian College

The world of social media and technology is fast becoming a central element of our children’s universe.  Whilst technology offers many social, educational and creative benefits, for parents it also introduces a number of challenges around staying informed of social media and gaming trends, identifying and managing cyber safety risks, monitoring your child’s online behaviour and finding balance.

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, iPads & some laptops) 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.

All parents who have children in Years 5 to 12 will receive and Activation email from Family Zone on 5/FEB to activate your account.

All parents who have children in K-4 can sign up via this page below.

For more information on all year groups (K-12) please refer to the Costs & Guidelines on this website.
