What an evening! 😀
Class kicked off at 5:30 pm with our very own Bellatrix welcoming the children.
They were ushered into the Hall by Mrs Potato a long lost cousin to Mrs Sprout, to begin the Sorting Hat Ceremony.
Our Random Wizard called for attention and the Sorting Hat Ceremony began! In quick succession the potential witches and wizards were in their houses and a captain chosen to collect their owl post. Captains ripped open the envelopes to reveal the Quest. Each House had a list of items to find in the library, including asking one of the witches if she had the Dark Mark and then ask for her signature.
The truly brave approached the magic books to seek items, dodging the Book of Monsters as it squirmed in its chains. The even more brave asked Bellatrix for their fortunes to be read, the crystal ball glinting invitingly in the lights.
Quest completed there was no slowing down as back in class Mrs Potato went straight into a quiz. It was a fast paced question and answer leaving Bellatrix not much time to mark the results of the Quest. Random Wizard totaled up the scores and Gryffindor won with only the smallest margin.
The best dressed were given prizes including our best dressed mum with lovely red hair. After the prizes got handed out, Mrs Potato did a reading to the class all about Aragog the massive old and blind giant spider. Not her favourite subject but nevertheless she persevered.
The final part of the evening was the Certificates of Attendance being completed and handed out. The evening finished up slightly earlier than intended probably due to the reading going a bit too fast!
Thank you to all the amazing kids and parents who made the night fun and all our incredible volunteers who made it happen!
