Class of 2024 Prom Venue

Morning all,


From our grade 12 student and parent meeting at the end of Nov, Grad Exec was provided with a number of possible Class of 2024 Prom venues to discuss and consider. After the meeting, a few more venue options were suggested by other families.


List of possible venues that were discussed and considered: Rivers Edge Harrison Mills, Hope Secondary School Gymnasium, Chawathil Gymnasium, Shxw'ow'hamel Gymnasium, Hope Legion, Hope Curling Club, Sunshine Valley Banquet Hall, Valley Helicopters - Private Venue Barn, Hope Golf Club and the Fraser River Lodge.


There was much dialogue during the decision-making process as each potential venue was considered, thank you again to those parents and HSS staff who brought forth suggestions for consideration. Venue considerations were: location and distance, scenery, picturesque and landscape for grad/family/friend photos, costs associated with the venue – venue and/or equipment rentals – tables and seating, kitchen access and equipment for catering services, ease of decorating, ambience and mood, size and layout, acoustics and sound.


After all of the aforementioned considerations, the Grad Exec has determined the Class of 2024 will host this year's Prom at the Sunshine Valley Banquet Hall. Grad Exec will be asking those parents who wish to be part of the decorating team to please email me and I will create a decorating group so planning and organization can be coordinated. Lori's Catering from Agassiz will cater the event.


January will be a busy month of more fundraisers – many hands will make for lighter work.


School-Based: Mario Kart Jan 25, 2024, and a Guitar Hero Apr 17, 2024 competition; both with cash prizes and concessions and then a spring plant sale (April/May). We will be needing parents and students to help organize/prep, and decorate for this event.


Community/Parent-Based: bottle drive Feb 17, 2024, and the Class of 2024 Parent Planning Committee (still room for more to join in) are planning an exciting game-packed pub night at Mountain View Brewing Co. and a Hope Legion Meat Draw. We are still looking, needing and wanting more parents to join – lots of room on the committee – thank you!


If you are interested in participating and helping out, lifting, decorating, cooking, driving, … please email me and I will add you to our parent planning email group.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 😊
