A school community approach to cyber safety.
Because they're worth it.
In 2017 the College had discussions about what more could be done to support parents in managing the technology usage in their homes. Our ICT team then investigated the various options that are available and came back to me with “Family Zone”. Digital technology has undoubtedly opened up a world of possibilities for our children but as we are all acutely aware it carries with it a multitude of potential risks.
In working with Family Zone our goal is to protect our boys from exposure to online threats, to assist them with time management and decrease the potential exposure to cyberbullying.
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.
I encourage you to set up your family’s account today by clicking "sign up" below.
