THE children at Golden Flatts Primary School, in Seaton Lane, weren’t exactly counting down the hours to Valentine’s Day.

They believe they’re a bit young to celebrate the day – but some did admit to handing out or receiving cards in the past.

Jamie Dalkin, 11, said: “Last year I gave a card for Valentine’s Day but I never told the girl it was from me. I didn’t hand out any cards this year.

“I think it’s a bit of fun, but it’s a waste of time really.”

Graham Lightfoot, 11, said: “I think Valentine’s Day is a waste of time. I have never given any one a card but I probably will when I get older.

“I think if I was going to give anyone a present for Valentine’s Day when I got older I would give flowers.”

Kieran Dunning, 10, said: “Valentine’s Day is nice for adults, they should be giving out cards. I have received a card before but I have never handed one out. I don’t really think it’s a special occasion.”

Alisha Young, 11, said: “I think it’s rubbish, we are too young to have a boyfriend.

“When we are 16 or 17, then it’s ok to have a boyfriend.

“If I was going to give something for Valentine’s Day I would give a card or get something from Poundstretcher.”

Melissa Forsyth, 10, said: “I don’t think children should give out cards for Valentine’s Day, it’s not appropriate because we are too young.

“I think it’s a waste of money buying a card, I didn’t give one this year.”

Jack Sotheran, 11, said: “I gave a card to my mum last year and this year for Valentine’s Day. But I think it’s boring, we are still too young.

“I didn’t give any other cards out this year.”

Mollie Forsyth, 10, said: “Some people might have boyfriends or girlfriends and enjoy Valentine’s Day.

“I didn’t give a card out this year, I got one last year. I didn’t want one this year.”

Katie Mason, 10, said: “I think Valentine’s Day is good because if you get a card you can keep them forever.

“I have had two cards in the past but I don’t think I will get one this year.

“I didn’t give anyone a card either.”
