specially designed for primary schools. It has been developed
in close collaboration with schools and their teachers.

publication is possible by their teachers.

can be kept up-to-date in minutes.

feature  for pages that need a long preparation or pages that are only 
needed once a year (Christmas).

- Built in modules for guestbook, e-mail, forum (closed forums for teachers
pupils, public forums for others), news (with an archive), search for 
searching the site, advertisments.
