The beaming faces of proud parents filled the hall at Clyde Fenton Primary School last night.
Students donned Santa hats and reindeer ears for their annual Christmas pageant and awards night.
Each year level performed a song and dance before prizes were awarded for school spirit, academic excellence and effort throughout the school year.
The Christmas spirit will be brought to life again tonight at the Katherine Christmas street parade.
The parade will assemble in the BP car park from 5.30pm to strut down Railway Terrace at 6pm.
This annual parade will have a North Pole theme this year.
