    I watched the game on t.v. and I really thought Germany would win.
    Ireland showed that they can compete with the best by holding Germany to a 1-1 draw.
    It was a great goal for Ireland and John O Shea especially with that game being his 100th cap for Ireland.

    Thats cool! This tablet sounds amazing but I wonder is it?! Apple said the IPhone 6 was really good and it was really good quality but then it ended up bending in people’s pockets!!! :-/ I think the thicker it is the better because its more durable! They are so expensive anyway!!! I wouldn’t take a chance on buying this Ipad it could just end up like the IPhone 6 expensive bendable and really bad!!! Why do Apple have to launch new Ipads when the first ones are really good! Also they are way cheaper! Apple are always launching new devices! Some of them are good and others are bad! Well I hope this Ipad doesn’t turn out like the IPhone 6. ~ ABBY ~

    Wow! This is amazing. I am a very big fan of video games. It is just so wonderful to see all the characters you know on stamps. This is a really great idea. And I am sure all video gamers will be delighted with this news. If I was to pick more characters to go in, I would choose the Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man and Rayman. It would be nice if you could tell me your opinion.^^

    I’m very shocked because Dublin Zoo, to me, wouldn’t really be the place for attacks but at the same time, you never know when an animal is going to turn on a child or adult. One second, your dog could be cuddling you and then the next minute, it could be attacking your younger or older siblings. I’m just glad the daughter and mother survived and I hope they recover well.

    It is great to hear that the turtle has made a full recovery.I wonder is it rare for a loggerhead turtle to be washed up in Ireland.It is great that someone from the public found Leon and who knows what would have happened if no one saw him.It is terrible that he got pneumonia,a broken shell and two infections.I did not know that turtles could live for up to one hundred years.I hope he will live a long life.

    It think that Liverpool really need to step it up a plate.On Sunday they were shocking to watch and were so lucky to win.Mario Balotelli is walking around the pitch he need to start making some goals!.Daniel Sturridge is supposed to return in 3 weeks from injury and I hope he starts to play well because since they end of the league last year it has been a downhill fall for them.I really hope they stop messing with the ball and start to score some goals!.

    I think that using iPads instead of books is such a good idea.I think that in primary school only 4th class and up should use iPads because 5 year olds going around with iPads is not a great idea!. In secondary school I think that people should use them full time instead of books.The children could use websites like clic news to help develop their English skills instead of doing boring comprehensions in books. The children that got donated these iPads are very lucky and I hope they put them to good use!.

  • Laura.A.Fahey says:

    This is so nice to read! Whoever gave them the iPads is so generous! Our school has iPads, but we have less than 20. I can’t imagine someone giving us 103! It is amazing that this person would spend God only knows how much money on giving pupils iPads! I’m sure learning is alot better when you’re using iPads instead of books!

    I dont like Arsenal and Germany but I still feel sorry for him.
    That will be a really big chance for Ireland.
    When he was missing Poland won with Germany 2-0.
    Please dont lose the chance.
    3 months injury is a really big time.
    I hope you will win.

    That is true snowmen can’t talk. And I am sure that nobody can shoot ice out of their hands. Unless they have a machine on their hands. And Disney don’t know that she had a book because the lady didn’t say that they know about her book.

    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
