Some of the money will go towards a project to renovate the school library.

The annual festive event, organised by Parent and Teachers Association (PTA), was held in the school grounds on Friday, November 30.

The highlight of the evening was Santa's Grotto which, as always, proved very popular with the children.

There was plenty of fun games organised by year 6 pupils to get people into the festive spirit. Visitors could enjoy a variety of stalls organised by the PTA and local businesses with a selection of crafts and seasonal gifts on offer.

The annual Christmas Craft Competition attracted many delightful entries and prizes for the winners were provided by iBounce, Coastal Craft Collective, Owl and Pyramid and Marc Smith Bespoke.

The grand hamper raffle and chocolate tombola were as popular as ever, thanks to generous donations from parents and carers.
