SchoolTV

SchoolTV is a new ongoing resource that is now available to our parents. Each edition will address a major topic with expert interviews, fact sheets, parent quiz, recommended apps, books and much more.

SchoolTV aggregates information from many great resources such as BeyondBlue and ReachOut, among others. It provides a single stream of independent factual information that saves parents time and confusion of searching online across multiple sites for information.

Insights - Family Zone

We have partnered with our friends at Family Zone to offer parents access to Insights. Family Zone Insights is a monitoring app that when installed on a child's device, will alert parents of risky or inappropriate activity, and allow them to locate their children’s devices. Most importantly, Insights provides parents with alerts, recommendations, and practical advice from ySafe, if and when their child accesses such content. Please note, Insights will not block content. It is designed to notify parents in the event that their child accesses risky or inappropriate material, and provide parents with transparency and support resources to discuss and manage the issue with their child.

Parents can be provided with the following instructions to claim their Insights account:

1. Visit this link to Create an Account
2. Follow the steps to complete the account setup
3. Grab your child's smart device, go to the app store and download 'Mobile Zone' app.
4. That's it! For immediate access to notifications and resources, parents can install 'Zone Manager' (from the app store) on their own device.
