    Personally, I think that K-pop is way too overrated the only difference between K-pop and any other pop song is that some of the lines are in Korean. However, I do think that it's nice to have artists in the industry that are doing very well worldwide that are not from America or England. I've seen some BTS fans and they are over the top. I've also seen some of the interviews from BTS and they are themselves and genuine, not some fake people like you get a lot with singers and famous people in general. In their songs they tackle important issues like mental health and political problems.

    I do scouts every week and personally I think that it is a great way the be more active, to get out more and to become more of a social person. We have more boys than girls and I find that being around boys makes me less awkward around them seeing as I am in an all girls school. The leaders are great and they teach us many life skills, like how to cure injuries and how to set up camp with nothing but the great outdoors! We have put our tents on our backs and hiked up a mountain and spent the weekend in our tents with friends. If I had to pick between GAA and Scouts I would have to pick scouts, not only because I have gone through beavers and cubs as well. ⛺️

    While it is harsh, I agree. I find that if I was given the opportunity to ask for as many French fries 🍟 as I can! This will help solve obesity problems and make the world a healthier place to live in. But I also feel like if we cut down on fries, we will buy larger burgers and more nuggets! This instantly causes many problems with the animal population. If this change would make the world a better place is a question that will remain unanswered.

    I think this is a beautiful way of spending your time outdoors and not being stuck on your phone inside. I would really enjoy this trend if more leaves in various sizes, shapes and colours would fall around my estate.

    I think that having free transport would help a lot even though it does have some issues. There would be less traffic because everyone would be in buses and trains, especially in big cities like Dublin. On the other hand, there would be a big demand for transport and car sales would drop. Also, they would not have money to pay for petrol and new buses once there is a bigger demand for them. A good thing about being able to access public transport easier is that when more people begin to use it, it would be good for the enviroment. Overall, I think that Ireland should consider this idea, but they would also have to think about some of the consequences too.

    I've never really liked spiders but reading this paragraph won't change that. I found it interesting because I never knew that spiders prevented woodlice, and moths. Also I never knew that the venom from some spiders in other countries is being tested as a way to cure cancer. Normally if I saw a spider I would scream and run, but reading this has made me think that they aren't so bad.

    I never believed about aliens having 20 eyes and 4 heads and other rubbish like that, but I do believe that they do exist. Infact I think there might be some on earth right at the moment disguised as humans. I know this sounds stupid, but that's what I believe.

    I visited the Hellfire club before, I'm unsure if this is it, but it sure was creepy. I had to walk up a big hill which was known for having deer around so I was quite anxious. I don't find this article really accurate since I don't believe in ghosts that much. But the trip was quite fun. The place was quite unsettling and quirky as if something were to be off. As I made my way up to hill with my father we suddenly came across half of a small forest which seemed to be completely burnt to a crisp, the trees were on the ground, all that was left to them was the black wooden trunks and branches, as we reached the hill there was a bunch of people there, running around this little castle saying 'satan, satan, satan.' every time they went around three times, I probably won't go back though. -Abbi.

    That's insane! I always thought PewDiePie was the highest earner since he has the most subs. Absolutely amazing, although most top youtubers swear and curse and stuff, he earns the most money on Youtube most likely and doesn't curse at all! It's baffling! Thank you for this semi-confusing article.

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

    CLiC News is the exciting venture from the Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) Access and Civic Engagement (ACE) Office, that brings you all the latest news stories written and produced especially for primary school pupils.

    Our free news website, CLiC News, was set up in conjunction with the TU Dublin School of Media and  Students Learning with Communities (SLWC) to provide a resource for DEIS schools in Dublin. We have subsequently made the site available to all primary schools but provide added support to local DEIS schools. We have set up a restricted site as we want to produce a safe environment for children which allows them 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 TU Dublin at a level which reflects the age range of the children (4th, 5th and 6th class) 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 pre-moderated and awarded stars based on their 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. Within CLiC News, as a parallel to published news items, we run various Polls and Competitions all designed to help improve the level and standards of literacy among the children. For more information on CLiC News and how you may apply to register your class please contact us HERE
    CLiC News is run in conjunction with the Journalism Department of the TU Dublin School of Media.   This is part of an initiative organised through the Access and Civic Engagement  'Students Learning With Communities' (SLWC) programme.
