Safer Internet Day takes place on Tuesday, 8th February 2022. The EU wide initiative will see young people across Ireland leading a series of awareness-raising campaigns and events in their clubs and schools to promote a safer internet for all users. Safer Internet Day is coordinated and promoted in Ireland by Webwise, the Internet Safety Awareness Centre, part of the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) and it is estimated that over 85, 000 people in Ireland took part in the 2021 event.
In St. Patrick’s we will be participating in a range of activities and webinars to mark the day and highlight awareness again this year.
