Peter Weir, Education Minister, Northern Ireland Government, said:

“Events such as Safer Internet Day are an effective and important way to increase awareness of online safety. With the increasing use of digital technology, it is vital that our young people are aware of the potential dangers online and understand how to keep themselves safe. Safeguarding children is of paramount importance and C2k’s Education Network service, available to all pupils, has been designed with a clear focus on Online Safety with built in controls to protect users as well as operating a rigorous internet filtering policy, however, we all have a role to play in continuing to highlight possible dangers.”
