Welcome New Students

Post by Prof. Rorey Padfoot » Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:49 pm

Hello, and welcome to A Visit to Diagon Alley! If you can't tell by the title, this class will be taking a tour of Diagon Alley, perfect for the start of a new term at Hogwarts. A little about me, my name is Prof. Rorey Padfoot and I am the Hufflepuff Co-Head of House. This is my 14th year at HOL and I am a super proud Hufflepuff! I hope you enjoy the tour and make sure to bring some money so you can grab some fun stuff.

Feel free to introduce yourself to the other class members here and tell us what other classes you have decided to take and why you chose A Visit to Diagon Alley.

This is the thread you will write your Extra Fun Part 1.

"Hello! My name is Draco Riddle and I am a third year. Three things that I would need on my first day at Hogwarts is a wand, a broom, and a cloak. Other classes that I am taking are Defense Against the Dark Arts by Professor Neville Prongs, Conflict in the Wizarding World by Sky Alton, Divination by Vanessa Tilley, and The History of Witchcraft by Polaris Black. I chose A Visit to Diagon Alley because I don't know all the shops by heart and I'd like to learn more about them."

Hi! I'm Savannah Foster (I'm a first year) and three things I would need on my first day is my standard size pewter cauldron and my wand from the required supplies list, a trunk full of books (for school and for just reading), and either an owl or a cat. Other classes I am taking are Charms with Tarma Amelia Black, Ancient Alchemy by Astor Arensin, HOL 101 with Amy Lupin, and Flying with I forget who. I chose A Visit to Diagon Alley because I thought it would be fun to go to all the different places in Diagon Alley.

Hello, my name is Lorence Alwood, and I'm a first year. I'm a muggleborn, but I've always loved reading about unusual phenomenon, so finding out I was a wizard and would get to study magic was an excellent surprise. Aside from the required materials, three things that I think I need for my first day are a standard muggle pencil (in case I can't figure out how to use a quill,) a journal for keeping my own notes on lessons, and some sort of case to keep my wand in. I'm a bit clumsy, so I'd like to make sure I don't break it when I'm not casting spells. I'm looking forward to learning with you all, and hope we can all become the best of friends together.

Tell us a bit about yourself, and tell use three things you think you would need on your first day at Hogwarts.

Hello! My name is Serenity Shaffer and I am a first year! This semester, other than A Visit to Diagon Alley, I am taking HOL 101, Languages 101, Potions for Beginners, and Charms. Three things I will need, other than required materials, are 1) books for pleasure 2) an owl and 3) my favorite journal. I am looking forward to this class because I don't know all that much about Diagon Alley and I want to be able to navigate it for when I need to go back!

Hello! My name is Anna Westbrook and I am a first year Ravenclaw! I am 11 years old, muggle born witch and I am super excited to be a part of HOL! A little bit more about myself is that I love to perform which includes all acting, singing, and/or dancing. So in my future, that is definitely what I want to be doing! As a first year, it was so hard to choose classes and because I'm muggle born, I wanted to choose classes that were fitting for me! So for this first term, I am taking:
1. "A Visit to Diagon Alley" (of course)
2. "HOL 101"
3. "HOL Quidditch"
4. "How to Role Play"
5. "Puzzles 101"

Since I am a first year, I thought of the many school supplies I must have. I definitely know that I am bringing:
1. A wand that includes a wand case! (because there is no way I'm losing my wand and making a 'first year' mistake!)
2. All of the books for my classes including a couple for a bit of light reading. I am also getting book covers that way my books will be clean and work appropriate.
3. My uniform which will be three sets of plain work robes. I am also including one winter robe in case of bad weather.

Hopefully I should be all prepared!! :unsure: :D

Hey! I'm Lizzi Long! I'm a second year Gryffindor. What I would need on my first day is my owl, copies of my favourite books and my journal to write some stories in. I do am interested in the human body, and trauma nursing. The other classes that I'm taking (besides A Visit to Diagon Alley) are
1) History of Magic: The Castle
2) The Magic of Forensic Science
3) The Tutors
4) The World of Fiction

I'm exited for the new year, and I hope it will be fun!

Hello, my name is Rose Evangilleen, and I am a second year Gryffindor. I happen to be a half-blood, so I feel lucky that I knew something about magic before coming here. I have two sisters, and only one of them has magic. I got a lot of hand me downs from them, but I don't mind. I only briefly went to Diagon Alley to get my wand. I happened to have a summer job, so I am excited to see where I can spend my money. I tend to be rather impatient and forgetful, but don't worry I'm loyal to my friends and I will always give people a second chance.
Anyway, for my second year I will need to buy a new pair of protective gloves, a set of glass or crystal phials (I broke my old ones), and Alivan's Wand Care Kit for some more wand cream. Everything else I would need I already have from my sister. One the downside its a little worn down, but on the plus side a lot of the books have notes in them. I am interested in animals, medicine (since I hurt myself a lot), and well... magic. : ) I happened to do exceedingly well in Care of Magical Creatures and Basic Healing last semester, if anyone needs help in the future.
The other courses I am taking are:
Advance Care of Magical Creatures
Magical Maladies
Puzzles 101
Superhero Studdies
I look forward to spending this next semester with you guys. I may be busy (as my mom is forcing me to take muggle school as well) but I'll respond when I am free. So, feel free to contact me! Good Luck everyone.

Greetings, my name is Raevia Ward and I'm a first year Gryffindor. I'm taking astronomy, potions, and history of witchraft besides this class. Although I've been to the diagon alley before, I wanted to know more about it so that's why I'm taking the class. Let me think, three things I'll need on my first day is a bit of spare parchment to write down due dates in classes, some bertie bott's every flavour beans to start a conversation with classmates, and a good deal of luck as I tend to run my mouth when I'm anxious and that's never a good thing.

Hi! My name is Anorak Thornhew. I am a muggle-born, and I'm so happy to finally get to see Diagon Alley! It was pure TORTURE waiting all summer after getting my letter. Some of the things I want to pick up at Diagon Alley are: A set of school robes, and an owl! (I got my wand from a wand-maker disguised as a muggle) I also want to pick up some "necessities" from the Weasly's Wizard Wheezes. (Don't tell the professors!) Some of the other classes I am taking are DADA, Potions for beginners, and Auror Training Level One! I'll see you all in the hallways soon!
