A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Our Lady of the Southern Cross College

Our Lady of the Southern Cross College wants to ensure that students are protected on the internet, no matter what device they are on or what source of internet they are using. Therefore we have arranged for parents to have access to Family Zone’s Mobile Zone app.

For more information please see the COSTS & GUIDELINES on this webpage.

You will receive an activation email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account and commence protecting your children's devices. Simply click on the Activate link in that email to commence!

What do you need to do?

1

Wait for the activation email from Family Zone, then activate your account.

2

Install Family Zone on your children's devices, run and install.

3

Manage via our Family Zone app. Download to your own Apple or Android device.
