A school community approach to cyber safety.

Cyber Safety Parent Evening - Thursday 7 March 6:30pm - 7:00pm

A message from the Principal

With our society’s increasing reliance on mobile devices, Scots College is continually working to provide ongoing support, guidance and protection for students, staff and parents from online harm while still allowing individuals the opportunities to take advantage of the educational advantages that the internet, gaming and mobile devices offer us.

Scots College has recently partnered with ‘Family Zone’, New Zealand’s leading provider of cyber safety and digital-awareness tools and services.  As part of this partnership, Scots is currently working with ‘Family Zone’ to create a private Family Zone account for every Middle School family. You will receive an email with instructions to activate your account after the upcoming parent evening.  Once your account is set up, please watch the videos and follow the instructions on this website to install and activate Family (Mobile) Zone on your children’s devices, and customise the settings for your family.

Please take time to read the ‘Policies’ link below which explains how we are distributing Mobile Zone licenses within our Middle School community and our ongoing expectations for technology use at the College.
