    I love dogs, I have a dog myself.My dog is scared of water because when she was a puppy she never went near water so that's why we should have brought her to the beach when she was a puppy so she would of learnt how to swim.A while ago my dog fell of a pier into the water and in the water she was upside down and then she came back up and she couldn't find the steps so she tried to get up the wall but then we helped her up.

    I wonder how the dogs surf because once I tried to surf and it was so hard, my cousin got hit in the head with a surf board because someone banged into him and he got a lump on his head. Do you know has any dog ever got hurt surfing.Thanks for the article.

    We learned about Neil Armstrong in school! In his childhood he grew up loving planes, and got his license at 16 years of age. He also flew the plane during world war 2! The only reason he wanted to become an astronaut is because when he had children one of them died at a very young age. His rocket was named Apollo 11 and when he was about to land on the moon, the spacecraft went from automatic to manual and Neil had to steer and save Buzz Aldrin Michael Collins (and no it wasn’t the Michael Collins from the 1916 rising) and himself. When they landed Neil said, The Eagle has landed.
    Micheals job was to stay in the spacecraft and rotate in circles so that they can fly to Earth safely. Buzz and Neil were the only ones on the moon. Neil made a big change to the world, by bringing a sample from the the moon to examine, and no the moon is not made of cheese!

    While this is probably going to help their species continue to survive and populate, I hope that this drastic change of scene won’t in any way negatively affect the koalas. After all, everyone knows, the climate change is more than enough! Hopefully this species will flourish under these new conditions.

    I love Halloween, I also really love my two dogs. I have a dog named Monty, and another named Sam. Sam is a crazy pup so I say he might whimper a bit with loud noises. Monty I'm not too sure, but I promose to keep them safe. I'm not sure I'm going trick or treating but my parents and brother can take care of my dogs. I'm dressing up as half skeleton little red riding hood. I can't wait till I can carve a pumpkin and dress up, but I already wore my outfit so my dogs are used to it. That I you for this article, HAPPY HALOWEEN ALL!! 🎉🎃👻🕷🕸

    I have no problem with old friends wanting to get back together and sing but I think this is just laughable. I’m not going to claim I know anything about this group but what I see here is people who in 2012 outlived their fame and they tried to go solo or pursuit other paths and they realized they weren’t making as much money as they used to be so they said may as well make some dough while we still can. Well, their demographic has probably changed in all that time. I’m not sure there’ll be teenage girls there anymore I think it’ll be people in their mid to late thirties craving a bit of nostalgia. I am trying to read between the lines here which is hard because as I previously said I know nothing about this group but I feel like I’ve seen this before. I’m also in a cynical mood today so that might play into it, who knows. Thanks for reading my comment!

    Wow, I always forgot how lucky we are in Ireland to have such easy access to clean water. When I went to Italy, while I know that it’s not really the same thing, there was no clean water, so you always had to buy it in bottles. One time, I was in Florence: it was 40 degrees, and we were all practically dying from the heat. But still in a shop, they were refusing to give a homeless woman water, even though she was only twenty cents short! Droughts and water shortages are a harsh reality in lots of countries, and I hope that one day their situation will improve.

    Its really nice and kind that LeBron James is opening a new school for these children. Its good so these kids can get a proper education without having to worry about stuff that is happening at home because the school days are longer. Since LeBron James knew how this felt, he probably wants these children to have a better childhood than he had. I found this article really touching and interesting.

    We learnt in school all about the disaster of Pompeii. I guess they are going to change
    the date by 2 months. My teacher said she went to Pompeii and she said that when
    archaeologists chiseled away at the rock lava they found the bodies. They where
    perfectly preserved so,they put them up around the village. It is amazing what information
    you can get from a book.

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

    CLiC News- is an outreach project within the Dublin Institute of Technology Access and Civic Engagement (ACE) Office.

    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 and are 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 children's 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 parallel to published news items, we run various Polls and Competitions.

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



    CLiCNews is run in conjunction with the Journalism Department of the DIT School of Media.
    This is part of an initiative organised through the Access and Civic Engagement Students Learning With Communities' programme.
