What procedures are in place to protect the safety of my child while online?

The internet at Northpine is all channeled through one computer called the proxy server. It has some software on it called NetBox Blue and this blocks inappropriate traffic and logs everything that passes through. Also there is a program that sits on the student laptop called the BIC Agent that redirects all internet traffic through the college's NetBox Blue server and in this way the internet traffic on the laptop is monitored and protected both at home and at school.
We also educate students on safe practices while online. These resources are available on the web so you as a parent can access them as well and reinforce safe practices. (http://www.cybersmart.gov.au/)
