Elfis and Elvin the Christmas Elves have been sent to Australia to make preparations for Santa’s visit but things don’t necessarily go according to plan.

These cheeky elves will have you laughing and singing as they combat the difficult Australian environment and try to find an Australian animal that can help lead Santa’s sleigh.

Santa has also sent them the task of making Christmas a little bit greener, so the elves invite the students to help with new ideas of what we can do to be more sustainable.
