    I think that it's unbelievable that a sixteen year old girl is nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.It's even better that Greta Thunberg has been nominated because she has done something marvelous about Climate Change that a numerous amount of people wouldn't have dreamed of doing.As Greta has shown the world that you can do anything when you put your mind to it, whether your a child or adult, big or small. I have great faith in Greta Thunberg. Thank you Clic News.

    The Greatest Showman is the greatest show and so was the soundtrack! The songs had a good rhythm to them and had really catchy words. All the songs sound amazing but I think my favourite songs from it are Rewrite the Stars, This is Me and A Million Dreams. The Greatest Showman is one of my favourite movies that I've seen and I could watch it over and over again. I've watched it three times and I know most of the words to the songs. This is a really good album!

    These pranks sound great and hilarious. Last year, my dad and I make a spider out of paper and stuck it on the wall. My mum was staying a bit later in work than usual so we had to wait for her. She came in the door and was really happy to get back from work. I pretended that i didn't know about the prank and went into the living room. I screamed "there's a spider, there's a spider," and my mum came running in. She had a tea towel in her hand and started to whack the fake spider. My dad and I busted out laughing and told her it was a prank. She had a grin on her face and we all began to laugh. I hope I could try one of these this year!

    It is not fair that people use 61 kg of plastic in Ireland alone and leave it lying about, I know some people don't but a lot do. The animals are getting affected and they have done nothing. I think that getting the water refill taps is a good idea. It is awful that people can't be bothered to go and put
    their plastic bottles in the bin. I'm am upset that it had to get to the serious point I wish people
    just do it anyway. It is bad to hear that one of Ireland, the small countries has the most plastic
    waste.

    This article is very interesting and. I know that we waste a lot of stuff like water if you are doing something and the water is on when you are using the bathroom you should turn it off and the same with rubbish. Before you put a carton of milk into the bin clean the carton before you put it in or it will spread what is in the thing that you are putting in the bin it will go on the other stuff that is in the bin. And don't forget to put the right stuff in the right bin do your bit and that makes a big difference.

    Even though I'm not a fan of Trump because I think he's one of the most ignorant, arrogant and incompetent presidents and politicians I've ever seen I think it's good that we are meeting him. You may not like it but America is one of if not the most powerful countries in the world and criticizing them wouldn't do us any favours. I think they did talk about pressing issues between the two nations so that's an upside. I do think that Theresa May has handled Brexit horribly and should be getting the stick she's receiving. In conclusion, it's good that we are allying with a broken yet powerful America.

    This is a great article to hear about St Patrick’s Day history. I was watching the parades on television and the parade was really amazing. It is a great thing to go, see the parades in your own county and spend time with your family to see the parades. I only found out that back years ago because it was St Patrick’s Day they could eat sweets to celebrate and it was during lent. Thank you Clic News for telling us about the history of St Patrick’s Day.

    This is super mean and cruel. My dog Belle was also mistreated. There was a man who kicked,hit and abused her he didn't even give her a name. He never fed her and when he was done with her he tied her too a bridge. D.A.W.G in Cork found her and my family fosters for them so they sent her to us. Belle was scared of my dad but was happy to be around any one else. After a while she got to know him and now is VERY happy. She gets scared when we raise our voice but that's all. She has been with us now for 5 years

    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.
