THE holiday spirit is well and truly in the air at Perth Airport.
Terminal 3 (T3) is glittering with Christmas trees adorned with hand-made decorations made by students from five primary schools: Ardross, Bayswater, Belmont, Guildford and Kewdale.
Perth Airport executive general manager corporate affairs and organisation development Fiona Lander said the annual Perth Airport Christmas Tree decorating competition involved students making their own decorations in art classes and bringing them to the airport to deck out the trees.
“The competition provides a great opportunity for local students to get involved in a community project that contributes to the festive season and provides a bit of Christmas cheer for travellers,” Ms Lander said.
“We were pleased to welcome the groups of students to T3 and hope they enjoyed making their Christmas creations just as much as visitors to the airport will enjoy viewing the beautiful trees.”
Now in its seventh year, the trees will be on display on level one in the Departures Lounge at T3 until January.
Members of the public, passengers and staff can vote for their favourite tree by completing an entry form and placing it in the ballot box nearby.
Voting closes on Wednesday December 16 at 4pm, and the winning school will be presented with a cheque for $1000 to spend on art and craft supplies in 2016.
