Santa Clause (aka, Kris Kringle, St Nick, Father Christmas and Dave Page, among other names) visited the children of Happy Hours re-primary this morning as he has done for the last 30 years to bring happiness to their faces and to deliver an assortment of great presents.

School principal, Tracy Lloyd, said that despite a very long journey from the North Pole, Santa had always taken time from his busy schedule to visited the children at the school and hoped he would continue to do so for a long time to come.

Santa said that he had brought some cold weather with him so his reindeer wouldn’t get too hot in Africa but, as he left, the sun came out once more and the weather began to heat up.
