Wollondilly Public School put on a Christmas party for the very first time on Friday, November 29 and boy did they put on a great show.
The event called 'Christmas Under The Stars' was organised by the school's P&C committee and was packed with children from the community.
The kids enjoyed the movie 'The Grinch' when it got dark at about 8pm, but it was Santa who stole the show when he arrived via Goldsmith Street in a police car with its siren on.
P&C committee member Leigh Walsh, who dressed up as Santa, said it was a pleasure to be a part of the entertainment and was thankful for Mission Australia's support.
"It's all about bringing smiles to children, especially with the drought situation at the moment," Mr Walsh said.
"It is also about bringing people around the community together.
"If it wasn't for Mission Australia, this wouldn't have been possible."
Mission Australia provided the equipment for the movie and their area manager of south eastern NSW and ACT Daniel Strickland said it is these community events that bring a smile to his dial.
"I enjoy doing it," Mr Strickland said.
"I love how at Mission Australia, we have the equipment to do things like this.
"I want to bring joy and pleasure to these kids and the community."

With a very popular event in Pictures and Popcorns coming up on Saturday, December 7, Mr Strickland hoped Wollondilly's event would add to the appetite of the community.
"This is a great prelude to picture and popcorn in the park," he said.
"Hopefully this gets people excited to get to that event."
There was also a sausage sizzle, popcorn, lolly bags, ice blocks and cold drinks available on the evening.
