After the exams of the 5th block were finally over, it was time for the annual End of the Year Party!
This year, we went back to prehistory with the theme “Cavemen all over again”. Lots of people came in an entire cavemen-esque outfit, but for those who didn’t, there was plenty of face paint to go around, so that everyone could live the cavemen life. With prehistoric ornaments, the Activities Committee turned Plan C into a complete party cave! With Deejay Jerome behind the turntables, we danced until the sun came up.
This year the Almanac presentation was held just before the End of the Year party kicked off. The Marketing Committee has put blood, sweat and tears into this masterpiece. They were so kind to sign each and every almanac with personalized messages.
