IT’S the most wonderful time of the year for the youngsters from Our Lady of Loretto Primary as they look forward to spending time with friends and family and opening lots of presents.

As part of the Post’s own festive series, we spoke to six pupils about their hopes and plans for the festive season as they get up to all sorts. We also found out what they hope Santa brings them on Christmas morning.

KARLY has asked Santa for L.O.L Sruprise dolls and a Monster High truck, that comes with accessories inside, this year.

She told the Post: “The snow is going to come and I’m going to make a pile of snow and I’m going to jump right into it.”

She is looking forward to going to her grans with her family for Christmas dinner.
