The Taoiseach has announced there's no homework for every child today to celebrate National Confidence Day.
It's an initiative by the group Starcamp, which created a special programme which was shown in classrooms around the country today.
Michael Martin is encouraging young people to believe in their abilities;
"I've been speaking to your teachers and they're happy to let you off your homework for one day.
"All you have to do is one kind deed instead of your homework. That could be looking out for a friend, or looking after someone in your family - it's up to you to choose.
"So please, enjoy your day. Believe in yourself and your abilities."
