It’s Official! The winter break is over, and the new term is ready to begin. Saturday afternoon, students filled the train, chatty and ecstatic to start the new year with a bang. With so many returning, the school feels like its normal self again, bustling and loud with happy students. The train ride itself was quite lax, though a few fights were of course started. That might be another article sometime!For now, we at the owl post would like to remind you of a few things as you start your term!
The school is still locked down! You may not enter or leave the castle on your own terms, including the greenhouse, the gamekeeper’s area, the woods, and of course Hogsmeade. There are doors and enchantments obviously locking us in, making it impossible to escape.
Owls have been re-confiscated and taken into the loving care of the Gamekeeper in the woods. They’re fed, taken care of out in the open of the forest, and you can talk with Professor Wibault it you’d like to send a letter with your or the school’s owl.
There is still a curfew in effect. Students are to be in their dorms from 10 PM to 6AM or else you may get reprimanded by a professor.
Winter break is over so uniforms are now back to being mandatory. You can go back to casual wear after 2 PM and on weekends.
We have classes starting back up by many current and new professors. Their schedules are on the calendar! Check it often!
There are still several clubs in the school that one can join, Quidditch and art being the two biggies. Another is Zemeckis’ potions club but they’re hand chosen members picked by she herself. THE BEST, in my opinion, is the Owl post, haha. We are still definitely looking for writers, artists, photographers, reporters and those who just love to gab!
In digression, I must state, Welcome back to Hogwarts! Let’s have fun, let’s stay safe, and let us get through this new term together.
