A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Mel Maria

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) 

You will receive an "Activation Email" from Family Zone if you are in years 4-6 or you can "sign up" below for the special $59pa education price . 

For more information please see the "Costs & Guidelines" section of this website.
