Saint Attracta's Senior National School www.sasns.ie was involved in the testing and evaluation of the SAFT CD-ROM several years ago. The school was chosen as it had an an ISDN link and an established fully networked computer room. The content was then made available on http://www.saft.ie/ which in turn has been enhanced and expanded to include all modern aspects of online safety for children. The site was relaunched as http://www.webwise.ie/ to reflect its mission to provide online safety to children of at various levels of education and online exprience.
