A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Swan Hill College

We 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.

Family Zone’s Mobile Zone app will be automatically downloaded to your child’s school device when your child attempts to access the school network. This ensures we can protect the device on any network during school hours, and gives you the option to protect and manage their online activity on this device outside of school hours.

For more information please see the COSTS &/OR GUIDELINES on this webpage.

Families from Swan Hill College will receive an activation email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account and commence protecting your children's devices outside of school hours. Simply click on the Activate link in that email to commence!

If you do not receive that email or need more assistance, please email support@familyzone.com

When you receive the email, simply click on the link ‘Complete Setup’ and then follow the prompts to create your Family Zone account.

Once your account is activated, you can log in to your Family Zone account via My account’ (top right hand corner of this website).

OR if you are a family from Woorinen District Primary School, Lake Boga Primary School or Swan Hill North Primary School and would like to get started now, simply click “sign up” below.
