MYSTERY SOLVED! – HO HO HOMICIDE

On Friday, 25-Nov-2016, the Faculty of Education put on its second Night of Mystery murder mystery party that brought together staff, faculty and international students for a ‘night of North Pole naughtiness!’ More than 40 people attended a shindig hosted by Santa Claus himself, to discover that Jangle the Elf (Cory Mugridge) had killed Jingle the Head Elf (Dr. Ron MacDonald, Dean of Education) in order to cover a toy manufacturing conspiracy!

Congratulations to those sleuths who uncovered the truth, as well as our award winners Alyssa Liang (Best Dressed), Catherine McAleer (Best Performance), and Sarah Muthee (Most Money)!

A gallery of images from our exciting evening has been added to the blog’s Celebration Album.
