Harry Potter Book Night
On Thursday 1st February, the library held it’s annual Harry Potter Book Night Party to pass on the magic of J K Rowling’s books to the next generation of readers. This year’s theme was Fantastic Beasts and lots of excited students and staff came along to join in the fun. Many made the most of the opportunity to dress up in their Harry Potter finery, although quite a few muggles came along too.
After a sorting ceremony to place students in their rightful houses, the fun started with a game of “What’s in the Bestiary” followed by “Breed your own magical beast” that resulted in some amazing beasts being created from newspapers. After a break for refreshments, which included butterbeer and lots of biscuits, their knowledge of fantastic beasts in the Harry Potter books was put to the test during the Beastly Brain-Teaser quiz.
House points were awarded throughout the evening and Gryffindor were crowned this year’s champion house. Pictures from the event can be found on the galleries page.
