    Wow!
    This is good and bad! You might think this this will relieve stress of the students that are going to take the exam, but I don't think it will because now they have to worry if they did good on other tests, were they good in class, if not, will they get a bad score, there are many things to worry about.
    And also preparing is a big part of life, an example is: if you have a report to do you need to prepare for it. Preparing for the Leaving and Junior Cert takes a lot of preparing, now these children doing the Leaving cert will not get too. On the other hand, this relieves stress of going over everything you have learned.

    It would be so annoying having to miss a fun trip with friends. I would feel so bad for the parents as well because they have to stay at home worrying about there children. I am terrified of the sea so if that was me I would have a panic attack! How would you last 5 weeks at sea! I am just so glad everyone returned home safely. When I go on boats I get very seasick so they were very brave!
    Thank you ClicNews for this interesting article! 😁

    Wow I am surprised their parents even agreed! That must have been scary for them. I don't think I would have the nerves for that! I am sure the parents were extremely worried. But I am glad each and every one of them got home! 5 weeks is a lot! they must have packed a lot of food and water. I know that you can't drink salt water from the sea!

    Imagine how nerve racking that was for the children as well! Did no one get sea sick? I don't get sea sick but I know a lot of people do. The teachers must have had a lot of pressure on them. To keep that many children safe and happy! And on top of that they had to make sure everyone was learning on the boat. Otherwise what is the point!

    I hope everyone was happy. I hope they didn't miss their parents too much! Anyway, great article I look forward to reading the next one! 🙂

    I loved this book SOOOO much!!! It is one of my all time favorite books! We read it in school,and we all complained terribly when we had to stop reading it at the end of the day, some days we stayed past the home time bell, captivated in the moments Peggy got bitten by the mean dogs, and the glorious moment they were reunited with their aunts, and at that moment, it was like everything was going to be alright. I was surprised ,every time, that once we had finished the chapter, that we could be looking forward to having a plentiful dinner when we return home, and that we didn't have a cold, harsh ache of hunger constantly in our tummys, and Marita Conlin-McKenna has done an AMAZING job of writing this story.
    I am very happy with this article, but with a book so good, I would of thought that the article could of been a little longer.
    But anyways, thank you Clic News for such an interesting article!
    Sincerely,TBa.

    Honestly I feel like being in the gaming industry would be hard. You would need to consider all the possibilities and make different endings according to what the player does. However, if you are working in the movie industry there is no interaction between the audience and the movie. So there will only be one ending. I always wondered how video game designers managed to actually pull these games off. It looks really hard. I think that video game designers are not given enough credit. Their job looks so hard! I don't know how anyone would be able to do it. Although, a surgeon's job is harder. Especially a neurosurgeon. right?

    Well anyways I had great fun reading this article and I hope that everyone in the future who reads it will too. Thanks Clicnews!

    Even though New Zealand is basically open now they should be really careful about what they do and when they do it because people could still have the virus. They should still be social distancing and be careful and they shouldn’t act like the virus is completely gone.

    It is sad that people hunt whales because they are so fascinating! I mean some even have horns on them! Whales are so big and cute so they don't deserve to be hunted. Neither do sharks actually unless it is for your own safety of course. I think whale hunting should have been banned a long time ago and that it shouldn't be going on to this day. Well I am glad that this Covid is doing some good. It would be a shame if whale hunting resumes next year.

    When I was little I had some weird thoughts about whales like: What if Narwhals go extinct and in the far future people thought they were myths just like unicorns? Like this: " Hey do you believe in Narwhals?" " No of course not. Only whales exist! Imagine a whale with a horn. that is silly"

    I think it is possible. But they would not call them narwhals. They would call them something else.

    Anyway, great article I liked it. Thanks Clicnews!!!!!

    This story was well written, quite professional! It's no wonder that it was a winner, this thoroughly deserved it! Well done to the author, you did splendidly!
    Did it make you feel a little uncomfortable, what with it being a cemetery and all?
    I've read about something like the body diggers. I think it was quite awful - after all, these were people someone had cared for and loved. And... I also read that some went a step too far and took LIVING people!
    All in all, this seemed like a very interesting school trip, and was a VERY good article!

    I love the idea of feeding the frontline! My mom is a nurse and she told me that this lady was cooking food for them everyday and she would get them, sweets, cook food and she gives them 'Thank you' cards! I hope this over-spreading virus will stop soon because I actually miss going to school, seeing my friends, and playing outside with my friends. So let's help the frontline workers by staying inside, washing our hands, and keeping our hands away from our faces. Thank you Clic News for this wonderful comment. It was very interesting.
    From,

    This is such a big environmental achievement for Sweden!
    I believe that we are fighting climate change and global warming. Wouldn't it just be amazing if we all could stop using coal and creating fossil fuels. This achievement will hopefully have a big impact on other countries to maybe consider this idea. Also it is great to hear that they shut down the last coal powered station two years ahead!

    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.
