A message from Seymour College

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.

All families from Seymour College are entitled to a Family Pack  paid by the school. There is no cost to families.  Please see the "Costs & Guidelines" section of this website for more info.

Early during term 2 2019, you will receive an email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account and commence protecting your children's devices. Simply click the link in that email to activate your Family Zone account & follow the prompts
