A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from the Principal

St Mary MacKillop 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.

To streamline the process of getting accounts created we need to provide your name, email address, student names and their birthdates to Family Zone.

Please be assured that the school and Family Zone take your privacy and security seriously. For more information - Privacy and Customer Detail & Security Policy.

For more information please see the COSTS &/OR 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!

If you did not receive that email, please contact the Family Zone Support Team on 1300 398 326.

 

What do you need to do?

1

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

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.
