    Thank you very much to everyone who congratulated me on my picture. That was very nice of you. This is why I like clicnews so much, because everyone is really friendly.
    I would also like to say well done to everyone who entered. It does take hard work to make these pictures and to come up with ideas for them.
    I love CaithleenFitzgeralds picture, it is very good, I wonder how she did it like that.
    I hope that everyone who said mine was good sees this comment because I want them to know that they are good people and that they deserve to be recognised!
    If you see this be proud of yourself!!!

    I would love to be a midwife because I love babies and I would really want helping mothers deliver their special babies. Also I will paint on my free time. I really love painting pictures such as flowers, trees, animals etc.

    I can’t believe there is a disease in bananas! Imagine a person who was eating it and the person found out there was a disease in it! That would be so gross. I think from now on I would not be imagining to eat a banana with that disease in it.

    I can’t believe she has reunited with her mother. I wrote this comment about her being abandoned and now I am writing about her being reunited.If I was her I would be angry,sad and happy all at the same time.I think I would get her since she was young and stupid to get pregnant and she honestly had no choice. At the same time it’s her fault for getting pregnant and honestly she should have kept the baby even though she felt ASHAMED of going to the hospital!

    Yum, this sounds delicious, I’m going to ask my mum if she can make it with me, I might even add some orange juice to this mix and make a yummy fruit smoothie!!!
    You can get this blueberry yogurt from supervalue, it comes in a glass pot and it has real blueberries in it!!! So it doubles as the yogurt and fruit! And it tastes really good too, and it is cheap as it only costs around 99c you should look out for it the next time you are there.
    I really like this, it’s a good idea for a dessert or for breakfast or even a snack, and you can share it with your family and friends too!!!
    The only bad thing about it is that it will need to be eaten quickly because otherwise it will go bad, but I don’t think you need to worry too much about that happening because it is such a good recipe!!!
    Thank you very very much for offering this recipe and sharing it.

    Are they serious? A fruit we take for granted each and every day may be gone completely in a few years? Just, gone? They can’t let this happen, I love bananas, what will I do without them??!!
    I hope that this doesn’t turn into another famine, like what happened here when the potatoes got blight. The great famine was awful, there was so many lives lost, can we let this happen again to another country? It said that it was part of their diet, so as Ireland, shouldn’t we try to help the most with this problem, we know what happened was terrible, should we let another country suffer like this?
    Good choice of title I must say, bananageddon. Good one.
    I feel sorry for farmers with bananas, it must be very annoying for them.
    I hope the bananas will be okay.

    Hi Niamh. I want to be an architect, because I love building with lego. I’m moving out of primary school this year and in secondary school because I’m 12, and in secondary school I’m doing tech graph and wood work, I think they will go well together. I have a little brother and a big sister, my brother wants to be a footballer, I Wouldn’t mind being a sports player. And my sister wants to be a vet I think.

    That is so sad he was a meek man I saw one of his books, his family must be proud and sad at the same time cause he accomplished something great in his life by getting the nobel prize award and writing and selling a heep of books. His family on the other hand must sobbing after suffering huge loss.

    I love Jacky. She is really inspiring. I really love her book Best Friends and Double act. Best Friends is about two girls Alice and Gemma since they were small they were best friends but then Alice has to move away and Gemma thinks this girl is going to take over Gemma’s job But you have to read to find out. Double act is about two twins called Ruby and Garnet. They are really good actors but Garnet gets in this school but Ruby doesn’t. Ruby cut her hair too. And Garnet was going to as well. Double Act is a great book I would tell the whole world that you should read a Jacqueline Wilson book because she is an amazing author and you maybe say “Oh no She is very old”. Age doesn’t matter because she is very inspiring.

    We are sorry but the full site content is only available to registered CLiCNews users.

    Computer Learning in Communities - CLiC - is a programme within the Access and Civic (ACE) Engagement Service at the Dublin Institute of Technology.

    The CLiCschools programme within CLiC has a remit to work with DEIS schools in Dublin inner city.

    Our free news website, CLiCNews, was set up in conjunction with the DIT School of Media and another ACE Programme - Students Learning with Communities (SLWC) to provide a resource for those schools. We have subsequently made the site available to all primary schools and would invite teachers who are interested in using the site with their class to contact us. .

    We have set up a restricted site as we want to produce a safe environment for children and we believe at the moment that teachers and, more importantly parents, agree with this arrangement. In particular restricting CLiCNews in this way allows children to leave comments without feeling intimidated and ensures that they will only come in contact with their peers or teachers.

    Within the site news items are written by Journalist students from the DIT at a level which reflects the age range of the children within our CLiCschools and is presented in a way which precludes using graphical images and language which are unsuitable for young children.

    As an encouragement and aid to improving Reading and Writing skills the children are encouraged to comment on stories which have been published.

    All the children's comments are moderated and we rely on a small number of volunteers, with a teaching background, and ourselves in the office to check them and award stars to those with good grammar and content. We also provide facilities for registered teachers to download the childrens comments from their school so that the content can be assessed offline. This is what distinguishes CLiCNews from other children's news content which is freely available.

    Within CLiCNews, as a parrallel to published news items, we run various Polls and Competitions all designed to help improve the level and standards of literacy amongst the children.

    For more information on CLiCNews and how you may apply to register your school please contact us HERE
