But little did the children know, a visitor had arrived directly from the North Pole – Santa Claus! Santa arrived to hand out gifts to the children who all flocked around the loving old man with their arms raised. This was only the second time they had ever been visited by Santa! Although some were still skeptical of this strange bearded man, many greeted him with love and adoration. The gifts that Santa handed out were rewarded with giddy smiles and frantic curiosity. But before long Santa was saying his goodbyes and on his way back to the North Pole.
The wonderful afternoon was rounded off with good music by local DJ Harry, crazy dancing by the children and good food provided by the Oppie Koppie kitchen.
To the graduates, we wish you all the best in your coming adventures. To the parents, we know you will encourage your little ones to move from strength to strength and wish you a merry festive season. And to the many hands that were involved in this perfect end to the year at the Oppie Koppie crèche, thank you, thank you, thank you!
