  1. Deadline for the first task is just over 12 hours away. Remember to get those pictures and stories in on time!

  2. Happy birthday to the one and only Prof. Dario Brighton!!!!! If you’d like to join me in standing atop a desk, yelling ‘Oh DHoH, my DHoH’ then please remember safety first and try not to fall off in your excitement. (Seriously though, Dario, you do so much, a sensational day is the least you deserve!)
  3. Wishing our very own PiC, Kim Alting, a truly amazing Birthday! I hope it’s magical ;)
  4. You have just over a day to sign up for the forest adventure and submit your Av/Sigs! If you're still looking for a partner, post in the appropriate thread and we'll make sure you're matched in time.

  5. Two more point earning opportunities for you to try your hand at (when you’re not madly churning out homework assignments and joining us for Gryfftoberfest, of course) Firstly, our own Paw Print is taking submissions until the 23rd of October. Get writing and remember to check out Pros and Cons so this can be the best issue to date! (You’ll find all the info you need over in The Quivering Quill) Secondly, everyone has been invited to our darling Sir Nick’s 525th Death Day Party. There is ghostly fun to be had and points to be earned so be sure to check it out. (Either follow the blog post in the Entrance Hall or have a look at the section called ‘One of the Roomier Dungeons’ on the HOL forum)
  6. Get those Gryfftoberfest mottos in! Just over a day until the deadline. :D

  7. Gryfftoberfest 2017! Come one, come all and join us for fun in the forest.

  14. News flash! The Alte just relaunched with chances to write articles and also to participate in their exciting year-long creative writing challenges. (Check the Great Hall for Prof. Ryan Granger’s posts on those) Deadline for this issue: 30th September The SerpenTimes is also open for business and is asking for your submissions based around ‘mystery’ as well as anything else you can think of. Remember to check out their extremely fun exclusives for extra points. (Visit the SerpenTime’s forum in The Dungeons or Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis’ thread in The Great Hall for details) Deadline for this Issue: October 15th
  15. The easiest way to help out your house and show your lion’s pride is to earn points! There are lots of ways you can do this so you’re bound to find some that play to your strengths. In this post, I’ll give you a brief run-down of the regular point earning opportunities available to you. Whenever a new one opens up throughout the Autumn Term, I’ll post it as a reply so keep checking back! The first and most obvious is to take part in classes. Most classes will give you the chance to earn 60 points a month through homework and extra credit. If you take several classes (even if you don’t have the time for the maximum of 5 every term), those 60 points soon mount up to quite a tidy haul. Class sign-up opened on September 1st 2017 so remember to put your name down for the classes that interest you and get sending in that homework! (It’s always a good idea to keep an eye on the individual assignment deadlines so that you don’t run out of time or put too much pressure on yourself) The next are the creative projects offered by the Hol Library and art department. If you enjoy getting artsy or brushing up on your writing, have a look at current and past projects, as well as keeping an eye open for new ones. Finally there are the house newspapers. These are a great chance to earn plenty of points by writing about what interests you. If articles and reviews aren’t your thing, most also offer creative prompts and even the chance to submit your own puzzles, recipes, graphics and many other things. All of them have different windows for submitting so be sure to check The Great Hall on the Hol Forum and the Common Rooms for announcements from the editors of each (I’ll be doing my best to keep you clued up about the deadlines for all of them here too). The most important thing to remember is that whenever you have some spare time to get journalistic, you’re almost certain to find a home for what you come up with. Visit our own Paw Print: http://pp.gryff.net/ Slytherin’s SerpenTimes: http://holserpentimes.weebly.com/ Ravenclaw’s Alte Sententiam: http://altesententiam.weebly.com/ And Hufflepuff’s Wizarding Times: http://padfootsportkey.us/Wizarding-Times Throughout the term, there will be unique and exciting activities to take part in which will give you the chance to earn points along the way. Remember to check my replies to this thread for announcements and reminders about anything that might be occurring!
