Harry Potter Night

Harry Potter Night

On Wednesday 5th February the library here at Bourne Academy was once again magically transfigured into the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the annual Harry Potter Book Night. This year’s theme was ‘The Triwizard Tournament’. The late, great wizard Professor Albus Dumbledore once exclaimed “Eternal Glory! That’s what awaits the student who wins the Triwizard Tournament, but to do this, that student must survive three tasks. Three extremely dangerous tasks.” Before our wizarding students could compete in the event they first had to successfully get their name into the Goblet of Fire, overcoming Professor Cole’s ‘Age Line’ charm preventing underage wizards and witches from competing in such a dangerous event. The potion master’s charms proved to be insufficient as students found magical means of entering the tournament. Students then undertook three gruelling challenges, firstly their transfiguration skills were tested; working in pairs to transform creatures into magical beings, including transfiguring Draco Malfoy into a ferret! Next up, students had to solve Professor Cole’s potion riddle, a much more successful challenge than his age line charm! Finally, students had to complete the Sphinx’s riddle to find the secret phrase and claim victory in the Triwizard Tournament. The evening rounded off with a Triwizard Tournament themed quiz, it was a very close competition between the Hogwarts Houses with a tie breaker determining this year’s victors – Gryffindor! Well done to all involved and thank you to Professor Howard for providing the Butter Beer, it went down a storm as always! Until next year’s event, remember that “whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”
