Quidditch Practice! Students from every house gathered to try their hand at quidditch. Each team had a keeper, a handful of beaters and chasers, and three seekers. The quaffle was handled by chasers and the beaters threw small leather balls at them as a distraction. Keepers did their best to stop the quaffle but each team scored 40 points. (4 goals at 10 points each). Finally the snitches were released. They ran and ran and after strong suggestion by Madam Hooch that the game couldn't go on forever were caught.
The Sorceror's Stone in Danger!
While students were enjoying quidditch Professor Quirrell was making his way through the trap door and beneath the school to find the sorceror's stone.
Three students from each house had a chance to stop him. Each house went seperately and was timed.
Quirrell ponders how to get the stone...
1. Get Past Fluffy to go through the trap door
Students quickly figured out they needed to put Fluffy to sleep with music. Some sang, whistled, and one even played his i-pod!
4. The Chess Set
Once trunk was opened with the correct flying key students found a chess set inside. In order to proceed students had to correctly set it up.
5. The Potions Riddle
A riddle had to be solved in order to figure out which potion needed to be drank to let them pass to the next task. One potion was correct the others held other things, like poison (salt water).
Incorrect guesses resulting in 30 sec penalties.
For a first time in years Gryffindor wins the house cup.
Well done Gryffindor, well done.
Last year Hufflepuff won and in 2013 it was Slytherin.
The places this year were as follows:
But lets remember the sorting hats advice and to not let the houses we are in divide us. It was just for fun!
