SANTA took time out of his busy schedule to visit a busy festive fete in Gourock.

Staff, pupils, parents and the wider community came together for the annual Christmas fete at St Ninian's Primary School.

There was something for everyone at the fete, which raised over £3,000 for school funds.

Siobhan Currie, depute head teacher at the school, thanked everyone for coming along.

She told the Tele: "Our fete was a great success and we are very grateful to our fabulous fundraising committee who organised it.

"The fete raised £3,263 - it was a great opportunity to bring our families together and to open our doors to the wider community.

"Everyone had a wonderful time - our choir performed beautifully on the singing steps accompanied by Mr Campbell on the piano and we had stalls, tombola, teas, home baking and fabulous raffle prizes."

Mrs Currie was keen to thank Santa for making the day extra magical.

She added: "A special thanks goes to Santa who as always took time out of his busy schedule at this time of year to bring joy to our children.

"We would like to thank our families and school community for supporting this and other Parent Partnership events.

"The money raised will be used to enhance children's experiences throughout the year."
