A message from St Mary's College

St Mary's 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.

On 19 July if you do not already have a Family Zone account, you will receive an email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account and commence protecting your children's devices.

To support the launch of these initiatives, we are also hosting a Family Zone Webinar on the 23rd July. This will be an opportunity for you to watch a demonstration and ask questions from the comfort of your own home.
You’ll receive an invitation to register for the webinar Family Zone via email, however you can register your attendence early by clicking here.

For more info please see the Costs & Guidelines on this website, or if you need assistance at any point please contact Family Zone's friendly support team using the Support contact details provided at the bottom of this webpage.
