Gold Spirit Award 2018-19

Post by Prof. Sky Alton » Thu Aug 16, 2018 9:47 pm

Come one, come all and gather round to set out your hopes for HOL 2018-2019!

The Gold Spirit Award was begun as part of HOL Appreciation Month. It’s designed to help motivate you to fulfil your own personal goals for the school year, however big or small, whatever they might be. Anyone is welcome, be they student, post graduate or professor. Read the criteria below and then have a think about what you’d like to achieve for yourself this year. Once you’re done, post your goals as a reply to this thread and get to work on them. You may earn a shiny award at year’s end.

  • You must make at least 3 goals, though we’d like 4 or 5.
  • They must be goals we can check and verify in some way
  • One goal must be how many points you’d like to earn (either overall or in particular classes)
  • One goal must be related to classes (number of quills you want to earn, number of OWLs you want to complete, number of classes you want to teach/assist)
  • You must achieve (or get very close) to at least 3 of your goals to qualify for an award
That’s it, happy goal making! And may the odds be ever in your favour.
