And kindhearted Alison Durling, 50, had so many they had to be stacked by the side of the road.
One parent described her as “Britain’s best lollipop lady”.
Alison said: “I was not expecting all these presents – it’s the most I’ve ever had. Three parents helped me carry them to the car.”
She added: “It is the messages in the cards that mean the most. I just do it because I enjoy doing it.”
Along with her lollipop lady duties, Alison also helps pupils settle in at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Beckenham, south London, where she works as a dinner lady.
And the mum-of-two, from Penge, also helps the elderly on and off buses with their shopping. Alison said: “I just feel so overwhelmed. Everybody is so lovely and St Mary’s is a terrific school. I love being a part of it all.
Gemma Burton-Nickson and her two daughters are greeted by Alison every morning.
Gemma, 40, said: “I saw her this morning with all her presents. She has been getting them all week. She must have more than a hundred gifts – I think everybody at the school has got her one.
“She is Britain’s best lollipop lady, absolutely. All the children flock to her. She is there every morning with a smile on her face to brighten your day.”
St Mary’s headteacher Isobel Vassallo said: “We are blessed to have her, she is such a huge asset to our school. She is such a friendly, smiling face for families in the morning.”
