A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from St Joseph's College

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.

All families from St Joseph's College are entitled to a Family Pack paid by the school. There is no cost to families. 

You will received an Activation Email from Family Zone to activate your account and commence protecting your children online.

You can log in to your Family Zone account via "My account" (top right hand corner of this website)

Brett Less, Internet Safe Education Founder and National Cyber Safety Expert
‘Parents have a right to know where their children go and who they communicate with. Parents whose family have been devastated by online issues who now use monitoring or filtering software would do anything to turn back time . They have told me so. Family Zone is an essential piece of the cyber safety formula.’
