Santa Visits White Lodge East Coast

Not another photowalk, I know, but this is an easy place to put these things so the other parents at my daughter’s school can see these pics.


Santa visited White Lodge East Coast yesterday (Friday 18th December). It was the last day of term, and thanks to our friend, Joe Paterson, Santa was able to make a quick stop at the School’s Christmas party to meet with the kids and hand out some candy canes.


All the following pics link to their page on Flickr, where they can be downloaded should anyone want a copy for themselves. All my pics are covered by an open Creative Commons license that only requires you credit me as the artist, should you republish the work. More info here: Creative Commons


Anyway, onto the pics. You’ll notice that many of the children are looking down and to Santa’s right (the lower left of these shots). That will make sense when you discover that the bag full of Candy Canes was sitting there next to the chair!

When we arrived, Ms Alyfya (not sure of the spelling, sorry) was reading a story to the assembled school:

Then Santa arrived, and my precocious daughter, Lily, was first onto his lap:

Then came Nicky and Daniel, Nicky was fascinated, whilst Daniel looked decidedly uncertain:

Then followed almost all the other children in the school, but there were a few notable exceptions - Robert Owen adamantly refused to go anywhere near him, so sadly there’s no pic of him; his sister Izzy, on the other hand, looked adoringly at Santa for the entire time she spent with him.

Izzy is in the middle of this next line – note the worshipping look she gives Santa:

Finally, Ms Yany (the departing Principal) got her pic with Santa, as did the two babies, who had been waiting patiently the whole time.
