A man dressed in a Santa Claus costume has given a Christmas message to a group of students in Florida.
The message read: “We are still on the road to recovery.
We can’t give up.
It is the only way to heal.”
The message was posted on Twitter by the school district’s Student Activities Department, which is part of the US Department of Education.
The district says it plans to use Santa Claus costumes on campus and to distribute the message around the world.
The department is asking students to share their Christmas message on social media and on school social media sites.
The Santa Claus message is part the school’s effort to spread awareness about mental health and wellbeing, according to a statement from the district.
It says it also plans to give away Santa hats, hand sanitizer and hand sanitiser tablets.
