The annual Student Association Banquet is one of the highlights of the school year at Campion Academy. In the months before banquet, students muster up the courage to ask someone to be their date. This year, the girls had the opportunity to ask the guys.
The night started off with a walk in the Christmas-lit Chapungu Sculpture Park. Although it was a cold evening, the beautiful Christmas lights made up for it. Students enjoyed taking photos in their formal-wear amongst the sparkling lights. Some students found shelter in a nearby gelato shop and ate some cold gelato in the below-freezing temperature.
An unusual, but fun activity for a banquet was playing laser tag at an arcade! Students had a great time competing against each other in a three-story laser tag course. There was also a rock wall, a ropes course, a 3D roller coaster ride, and arcade games! Even Principal Reeder and Mr. Kast got in on the action on the ropes course. "My favorite part of the night was playing all the fun arcade games," said sophomore Ireland Anthony. This was definitely the climax of the night. Lastly, the students returned back to campus and ate dessert in the beautifully decorated student center. The ice cream sundaes were a hit!
Overall, the night was a success. Jessica Davis, the event coordinator for the night, felt "the night went really well! Everyone had a great time." Thank you SA for planning this fun event!
