HOL Goals 2019/2020

Post by Sky Alton » Sun Sep 01, 2019 2:33 pm

The Gold Spirit Award was begun several years ago as part of something known as HOL Appreciation Month. It’s designed to help motivate you to fulfil your 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!

Criteria
  • 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. If you want to collect a certain amount of beans or the like, you’ll need to send me a screenshot of you having the right amount.
  • One goal must be how many house 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
The very best of luck!
