    Freshwater Christian College wants to ensure that students are protected on the internet at all times no matter what source of internet they are using. Therefore we have arranged for parents to have access to Family Zone’s Mobile Zone app.

    As part of our ongoing commitment to educational excellence and our duty of care to ensure students’ safety and well-being, we are pleased to announce that Freshwater Christian College has partnered with Family Zone.

    Family Zone is a cyber safety solution that protects children on the internet wherever they are; at home, at school, and everywhere in between. Providing parents with visibility, and allowing them to manage their kids’ online activity, with ongoing support from a team of leading Cyber Experts.
