In England, a teacher decided to tell children that Santa Claus does not exist

In England, a sixth grade teacher told students that Santa was not real. After the incident, the school administration contacted the agency that sent the teacher, and she was fired.

The DailyMail reported that parents received a letter from the school after everyone learned about the situation.

The teacher who had told the children the truth about Santa Claus was a substitute. When the children were making Christmas cards, she decided to tell them that the magical New Year's hero did not exist. After class, the students started asking their parents if what the teacher said was true.

The school administration was irritated and deeply disappointed by the teacher's actions. However, parents remained puzzled as to how the teacher wanted to ruin Christmas.

"We know that this afternoon, while making Christmas cards, the teacher told the 6th grade children that Santa Claus is not real. We apologize for any upset this situation may have caused you and your children, and we will be in touch with the agency about it. Please accept our sincere apologies and thank you for your understanding of this matter," the letter to parents reads.

Later, the school sent a message that this teacher would not return to this educational institution. The agency where the teacher worked also had to apologize.

However, not all parents were able to react calmly to the incident.

"Christmas is a busy time of year, the last thing we need at school at the end of the year is to ruin the magic." "What teacher in their right mind would say that to young children? And how did this even come about? The mind boggles."

The school also commented on the incident.

"This is a magical time of year for us and we make sure that the children have many opportunities to celebrate the joy of Christmas, including a wonderful nativity scene put on by our students, church visits and pantomimes, a Christmas fair and caroling on the playground, to name just a few," the administration said.
