Holiday Banquet 2015 Preview

Shh. Do you hear that? The distant sounds of bells accompanied by the laughing of teenagers? Okay, maybe not… But the inevitable has arrived along with the holiday season; the Holiday Banquet of 2015!

The last time SLA had a holiday banquet was around four or five years ago, so this year is a big year! The current SLA students have not been given the opportunity to attend a Christmas banquet before, so attendance is expected to be decent.

So here are the basic details that you’ll need for the upcoming banquet. First, only SLA students are allowed to attend the banquet (this may cause a drop in attendance from those who wanted to bring friends). The event will be held on December 15, 2015 from 6-9pm.

I spoke to the SA President, DeAnna Brown, asking why they decided to do a holiday banquet over a fall banquet this year. She responded saying that because the students hadn’t yet experienced a holiday banquet it would be new and interesting.

For transportation the bus will wait at the school from 5:30 and will depart at 5:50pm. The permission slips are due this Friday, December 4.

But now for the reveal of the location.

This year’s banquet will be held at the International in Bolton in the Grand Room. Believe me, the room does not fall short of it’s name. Take a look!

By the looks of it, this years’ banquet looks pretty promising! I’m looking forward to it, and I’m sure  many are also!

And please, feel free to leave a comment below on either a time you attended a Christmas banquet or whether you think the banquet looks promising or not. Also, be sure to look out for our concluding article covering the event and the activities!

There are only so many people who can say they're fans of pirates, superheroes, and violin pop; I am one of them. Some would describe me as spontaneous, others a spazz, and some a caffeine addict... that last one is no longer true.
