    I love Miami Heat and I am sad that they didn’t win. I love basketball I play with a club and basketball is my favourite sport. Basketball is getting more popular in Ireland nowadays. I would love to become a professional basketball player. I hope I get to see Miami Heat play someday. My favourite players on the Miami team our the big three Lebron James, Chris Bosh and Dwanye Wade.

    That is so nice.I love the way they used locks. They can decorate their own aswell and make it creative. It is so sad that the brige collasped because many locks got broken or lost. I wonder how far back the locks go? Mabye the first lock that was first put on is still there.

    I am very happy that the owners found the ticket. I would have been exceptionally worried if I was in their postion. I once lost my mp3 player and I got very worried. It was very clever to put the address and contact number on the back of the ticket.

    Some people might like the movie ‘Frozen’ to become a musical but in my opinion it is a really bad a idea.Frozen is a very beautiful movie and if it was to be turned into a musical,it would just ruin the beauty in the movie.

    I understand what they are trying to say but why ban the mobile phones. What if some people need their phones for a very important thing.It’s just a mobile phone! I don’t think that eating with your mobile phones often happens in some of the restaurants.I’m sorry but I think that it is really stupid on what your trying to do.

    AWWWW. This has been my first year in CLICnews and it has been amazing, unfortunately I will be leaving the school so won’t really be in CLICnews as much as I am used to. Well I will be but not on competions. I will try not to win them. CLICnews was the best internet thing ever. I am so glad that it is made. The new CLICnews team… I will like to wish them good luck and the old good luck on the future.

    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 Office in 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
