Harry Potter Night

The Gryphon hosted it’s annual Harry Potter night last week, with dozens of students and staff joining in an evening of magical fun!

Students started off the evening by being sorted into Hogwarts houses by the Sorting Hat, before heading off to Potions (Science) where they mixed a potion to test for an obscurus using ground mandrake root and they then used special liquid to reveal hidden messages on pieces of the Marauder’s Map.

In cookery they had fun; making owl cupcakes, cheesy broomsticks and taking part in a taste test challenge to identify the every flavoured biscuits, which included Marmite and Lavender.

The highlight of the evening for many students was the school’s inaugural Quidditch match. Students took part in the energetic sport whilst riding hockey sticks (brooms), avoiding bludgers and trying to score goals whilst also chasing the golden snitch!

The evening ended with a Harry Potter quiz in the school’s Learning Resource Centre, where students tested their knowledge of the books, and the Ravenclaw team were crowned the winners.

Librarian Julie Hoskins who organised the event said “It was another fantastic evening of Harry Potter themed fun, with both students and staff enjoying the activities.  The teachers put together some fantastic activities for our Harry Potter enthusiasts, many of whom have encyclopaedic knowledge of the series!”

Harry Potter Book Night is a worldwide event organised by Bloomsbury, and last week saw more than 13,000 events being held across the world.
