    Gryfftoberfest is Coming... (Motto Contest!)

    We received some incredible Mottos and found it really hard to pick a winner. That being said, we just about managed to narrow it down and the results are as follows: The winner is…. ‘Roaring With Pride’ by Vanessa Tilley! Congratulations Vanessa In second place is Eno Thomas with ‘Fantastic Lions and Where to Find Them’ And finally in a joint third place are Iverian Gnash with ‘Rock n’ Roar, Lions’ and Vanessa again with ‘Full of Pride’ Congratulations winners and thank you so much to everyone who submitted mottos. With that wrapped up, the party can start! Head over to the Gryfftoberfest Forum.

  7. To paraphrase Hamlet: mottos, mottos, mottos. Get them in! (Or else be subjected to even more of my literary nerdiness)

  11. 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 2018 and will remain open until December 20th 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, look out for when the Departments reopen later in the year. 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. Brows old editions of 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!

    True or False

    True-ish: I like the being somewhere else part. The 'getting there', I could sometimes do without. Looks up spoilers for stuff they read or watch

    Would you Rather...

    Rat. Snakes freak me out a bit. Would you rather go to Hogwarts or one of the other wizarding schools?
