“When in doubt, go to the library”
– Hermione Granger, “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

This week, the library has been full of students sharing the magic of International Harry Potter Day (2 May). An iconic series of fantasy, magic and friendship, Harry Potter continues to be loved by our students. To celebrate, the library has been transformed with floating candles, flying keys, books of spells and potions, and Professor Umbridge’s educational decrees. Students have loved participating in Harry Potter themed crafting activities at lunchtimes, making chatterboxes to determine which Hogwart’s house they belong to, playing games, testing their knowledge through wordsearches and crosswords to name a few.

It is wonderful to celebrate the timeless joy of the Harry Potter stories, with so much to learn from the challenges faced, the friendships formed, and the courage shown throughout the novels. They remain a St Aloysius student favourite!
