Faolan Hunter, age 9, Lundavra Primary School

It’s time to decorate your tree
it’s time to be full of glee
Christmas time is full of joy
for every girl and every boy
Watch Santa fly
and zoom through the sky
Look at the snow
and its amazing glow

Kayla Duncan, age 8, Caol Primary School

Wishing you lots of Christmas cheer
Santa’s coming with his reindeer
Snow is falling from the sky
Children making snow angels as they lie

Who is coming down the chimney tonight?
As quick as a flash Santa is out of sight
Listen to the angels sing
Isn’t it the loveliest thing
