Shap­ing up well for Christ­mas

Stu­dents from South Coogee Pri­mary School share how ex­cited they are for Christ­mas.

Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

STU­DENTS at South Coogee Pri­mary School have a long and as­sorted wish list for Santa this Christ­mas.

Elec­tron­ics such as tablets, phones, gam­ing con­soles and fit­ness track­ers were high on the list, but stu­dents also ex­pressed their hopes for roller­skates, more books to read and even an “I’m happy with any­thing” from one young girl.

The Cock­burn Gazette vis­ited the school re­cently to ask “Why is Christ­mas spe­cial to you” and got some great an­swers.

Ni­cholas Law­son-Lofrentz (12) said he liked that Christ­mas en­abled him to catch up with ex­tended fam­ily and friends.

“I like that you get to see peo­ple that you don’t see ev­ery day, for ex­am­ple my mum’s cousin, the peo­ple you don’t get to see be­cause of school,” he said.

Is­abelle Cross (12) and Zara Fog­gerdy (9) agreed, say­ing they too en­joyed spend­ing time with fam­ily.

“You get to spend time with fam­ily and friends and just have a re­ally nice day,” Is­abelle said.

“It’s time to see your fam­ily and have fun with ev­ery­one that you’re cel­e­brat­ing with,” Zara said.

Kori Rainey (10) said she loved the spirit of Christ­mas, es­pe­cially when Santa ar­rived.

“I don’t get to see my fam­ily very of­ten be­cause they live in dif­fer­ent coun­tries and states, and I just love go­ing to see peo­ple that I love and that I cher­ish in my life,” she said.

“I like hav­ing a nice din­ner, open­ing the presents and giv­ing presents to them. And I en­joy Santa giv­ing amaz­ing presents to ev­ery­one.”
