CHRISTMAS is just around the corner and the students of Armadale’s Neerigen Brook Primary School can barely contain their excitement.

The young students have plenty on their present wishlists, from Xboxes and iPads to fishing rods, bikes, hoverboards and candy.

Comment News visited the school recently to ask the students “Why is Christmas special to you?” and we got some great answers in response.

Sohayla Sumner (12): “Christmas is special to me because I have good memories of before we moved to Australia and all our family would come over and celebrate with us.”

Connor Bulloch (age 9): “Christmas is special to me because you get to hang out all day with your family.”

Jonathan Rose (12): “Christmas is special to me because it’s about me and my family coming together, especially when it’s family I don’t get to see much, and remembering my family who have passed away.”

Gracie Oubid (11): “Christmas is special to me because I like to see the joy on my sister’s face when she opens her gifts.”
