Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Christmas -

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.
