Staff Changes

It is with utmost joy that I announce the promotion of Polaris Black and Sky Alton. These Prefects have demonstrated exemplary HOL spirit and model conduct. We are honoured to have them join the ranks of Head Students. Please join me in best wishes and congratulations!

As we all know, real life often gets in the way of other commitments and we are sadly saying goodbye to Ariella McManus and Maxwell Shadow as Head Students. We thank you for your service!

Have some butterbeer on me. Cheers!

Prof. Dario Brighton

20 Down, Many More To Go...

Text: See you next year!

Dear students and fellow professors, another school year is officially behind us. All of those who have managed to earn at least two quills will soon find their name another colour. For those of you looking to become teachers or professors (or just continue being one of those), keep an eye out for class applications. Unlike previous years, the applications will be a bit late and you can expect them only in a few weeks, but that will in no way have any result on the beginning of the term and other important dates for the next school year.

Now to the more interesting events!

A big congratulations to Ravenclaw House for winning the House Cup with 44,775 House Points! It was a close battle all the way till the end, but the final points have weighed in in Ravenclaw's favour, so congratulations once again. Excellent work!

Another round of applause for the Slytherin Quidditch Team for winning the Quidditch Cup without a single defeat, well done, Slytherin!

Now to individual honours: Arianna Stonewater of Slytherin is HOL's top points earner with 4,006 House Points. Congratulations, Arianna!

Graduation honours will be posted once our brave seventh years are done taking their NEWT examination, so let us all wish them the best of luck!

I hope everyone enjoys the summer. Make sure to keep an eye out for our summer activities.

Gryffindor Common Room Registrations

Hello everyone! I wanted those who were waiting to be validated to know that it has been done. However, there is a problem. If you tried to sign up for the Common Room, or do an email or name change between the months of the end of October and mid-April, the database did not log your request.

There is literally nothing between those dates to validate, so I ask if you did so during that time frame to please register again as the system did not receive your original.

I will continue to check validations once a week from now on.
