MANDURAH residents are encouraged to engage in the Christmas spirit and take advantage of this year’s Nativity Scene Competition.

The competition, co-ordinated by Foundation Christian College, is in its 10th year.

The Schenk family, who have been past winners of the competition, made a nativity scene for the college to display.

Principal Andrew Newhouse said it was a great surprise to see a nativity scene appear in the administration foyer.

“What makes this special is that a family from our college community took the time to create this for us,” he said,

Mr Newhouse hopes the competition will encourage other families in Mandurah to take part.

“We want the community to recapture the true and original meaning of Christmas,” he said.

“We would love Mandurah to share in our vision and participate in the competition which attracts residents of the city to explore the Christmas message in 3D.”

Winners will receive $300 for scoring first place, $200 for second place and $100 for third place.

For entry, nativity scenes need to be visible from the road and can be located on your front veranda, on your roof or in your front garden.

Nativity scene entries can be lodged by contacting Foundation Christian College on 95865444 or by emailing your name, address of nativity and contact telephone number to office@fcc.wa.edu.au.

The competition closes on December 11.
