A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Riverside Christian College

Riverside Christian College want 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 .

Riverside Christian College will be covering the cost of a single Mobile Zone app, to cover the device your child uses for school.

If you would like to upgrade your Family Zone account, to cover more devices and/or other children in your home, you can purchase a Family Pack at the special education price of $59pa.

For more information please see the "Cost &/or Guidelines" section of this website.

On 01/APR/2019, if you do not already have a Family Zone account, parents will receive an email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account and commence protecting your children's devices.

Simply click on the link to Complete Setup and follow the prompts to create your Family Zone account.

1

2

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

3

Manage via our Zone Manager App. Download to your own Apple or Android device.
