A school community approach to cyber safety.

Because they're worth it.

8th May (Week 2 – Term 2)
CYBER SAFETY INFO NIGHT with Cyber Experts from ySafe 
7pm Pater Noster Hall
 

Dear Parents,

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. That’s why we’ve partnered with Australia’s leading provider of cyber safety and digital-awareness services, Family Zone.

To complete the circle of safety for your child, however, we need your participation.

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 (home, school, elsewhere) 

I urge you to set up your family’s account today by clicking "sign up" below. Only by working together can we meet our digital duty of care - at school, at home, and everywhere in between.

 
Greg Stinton
Principal
