Santa Claus came to Queen Margaret College on Thursday 30 November, but he wasn’t dropping presents off… he was collecting them.

The Breeze, in support of Wellington City Mission, brought a bus with Santa on board to Queen Margaret College as part of the annual “Pack the Bus” campaign to help the community at Christmas time.

Year 8 students organised for the bus to come to school to be filled with gifts and toys from students and teachers.
