Two special guests helped start off the festive plans at Greyfriars Academy in Lynn.

A visit from Father Christmas and local radio presenter Simon Rowe, of Radio West Norfolk, meant that the Christmas festivities were under way for the pupils.

Children of the school in London Road, made decorations for their Christmas tree and were given a surprise visit from Father Christmas.

Simon came to the school to switch the tree lights on and hear some of the children sing Jingle Bells.

The light switch on signalled the start of the festivities at the school and the children are going to see the pantomime Beauty and the Beast at the Corn Exchange Beauty.

Following that they will be singing Christmas songs around the tree for the parents on the last day of term.

A spokesperson said: "We have also been busy dressing up as elves to raise money for the Brain Tumour Trust and will be wearing our Christmas jumpers to support Save the Children next week.

"Friends of Greyfriars School (Frogs) organised Father Christmas to come to see the children and the Christmas tree was kindly donated by Moore’s Scrap.

"The Frogs team do a fantastic job of raising money for the school and we are very appreciative of their efforts.

"Moore’s scrap has very kindly teamed up with Frogs to organise the Santa dash, which has raised money for the school as well as other charities."
