At the Save the Children Awards Dinner for the Airport Christmas Tree Competition on Saturday evening, our tree was awarded Runner Up prize by the voting public.
We are basking in reflected glory as Ian Walmsley, Head of Fairfield Primary School, took our basic idea of a language tree made out of florists’ ribbon and created the amazing design you can see here. He involved children from Ballacloan and St Thomas’ Schools. They researched Christmas in different cultures and illustrated those cultures on a series of cards.
You may have seen children from Fairfield creating the tree on the Songs of Praise programme that was broadcast on 1st December. It was exciting to see the Festival featured.
Now we need to come up with a game plan for next year. Any ideas?
