A big snow globe proved to be very popular with visitors, with large queues waiting to get their photo taken inside.

Special guest Santa also drew in the crowds, with youngsters letting him know what they want for Christmas.

Lights were placed on the trees to the front of the school, and everyone at the event took part in the countdown to the switch-on.
