  7. Head to the Current Activities section to check out Summer Wand-erings! We're spending a magical summer at Ollivanders, learning just what goes into creating the very finest wands. You've got until 21 August to get involved, so plenty of time!

  8. Do you want to help make Gryffindor even better? If you're a Gryffindor student and you've been a member of HOL for over 5 months, you should consider joining the staff as a Junior Prefect. Head over to the Guidelines forum for more information!

      Deciding which classes ito take but it's almost too difficult to choose. Also it's lovely to get back to the hol family. What about you?

      Ahg, yes, choosing classes is always tricky, Emerald! Hope you managed to whittle it down. And honestly I couldn't pick just one thing I'm looking forward to, though Gryfftoberfest is in the offing. ;)


      And welcome to HOL, Sophie! I hope you have a truly magical year.

  13. Amazing work, Gryffies. Whether you're planning to stick around for July and August (there's plenty of fun scheduled!) or if we'll see you back on 1st September, I hope everyone has an incredible summer.

      Have a great summer everyone! Congratulations on propelling Gryffindor into second!! Amazing work everyone :D

  14. Head over to the Current Activities section and check out The Spell-ing Bee! Join us for a series of small but spellbinding challenges to finish off the term.

  15. Make sure you head over to the Quivering Quill to find out about our latest issue of the Paw Print! It'll be one of the last chances to scoop some last minute house points so get brainstorming some wild ideas.

  16. Who's excited for the new term? Got any exciting plans? Know what classes you'd like to take?

    1. Rose Pottermore

      Rose Pottermore

  18. You have just over 48 hours to turn in things for Owl Winter Long! We'll need everything signed, sealed and delivered by 11:59 PM HOL-time on December 20th.

  19. Remember there's still a few more hours to earn points with Creature Card Corral over on the main forum. While you're there, make sure to check out The Land of the Sweets which begins on Monday! Any extra points you can earn will help the house. Let's go, Gryffindor, let's go!

  20. Plenty of excitement around The Den this week! Join us in the Hogsmeade Post Office for Owl Winter Long or have a look at the new issue of the Paw Print, our house newspaper. (Or you could do both... definitely do both)

  21. If you've already started the Gryfftoberfest Quest then you have an extra day and a half to complete it. Due to the trouble we've been having with the various websites, I wanted to extend the deadline slightly to give those of you who are already part way through a fighting chance to get to the end. Make sure you get your tasks in before the 3rd of November at 11:59 PM HOL-time if you want them to count for rubies!

  22. Remember to get your submissions in for the Paw Print!
