Christmas Party 2015

The Christmas party, held on the 26th December 2015, was fun. The well-attended event saw both Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians coming together.

We had Mr. Theodore Awuletey treating us to some Ghanaian drumming and rythyms. Those who had not eaten Ghanaian dishes in a while got the opportunity to enjoy some tasty local dishes (thank you Gifty Adom and team). We crowned our Azonto dance champions and danced the year away.
