Harry Potter Poster

Are you brave enough to be a Gryffindor? Cunning enough to be a Slytherin? Smart enough to be a Ravenclaw? Just enough to be a Hufflepuff?

Do you have what it takes to win the House Cup?
You do? Then come along this Tuesday for the first of three classes - Herbology! Starting at 6pm in the Parlour in Goldsmith Hall, once your House has been chosen by the Sorting Hat your lesson will begin.

You can sign up online at this link

Remember that in Hogwarts we value and will give points for a variety of things, including:
- Attending class
- Participating in class activities
- Doing your best
- Answering questions

Only one House can win the Cup - who will be this year's victors? Which House will win not only the competition, but also a special prize? And which individual will assist their House the most? There won't be any time-turners available to change the outcome, so make sure you do your best while you can to secure your House's victory!
