"Everyone pick their favourite tune,

& off we go!"

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,

Teach us something please,

Whether we be old and bald

Or young with scabby knees,

Our heads could do with filling

With some interesting stuff,

For now they’re bare and full of air,

Dead flies and bits of fluff,

So teach us things worth knowing,

Bring back what we’ve forgot,

Just do your best, we’ll do the rest,

And learn until our brains all rot.


Even though our official HH classes don't begin until next month, we are doing DADA, so thought it only proper to sing the school song. We still shan't hold our drawing for the gorgeous wand until October though, so keep your bloomers on.

How are things going for everyone? The HH kids began receiving Owl Post over the weekend, & have been beside themselves! In addition to DADA activities, Owls from Professors have started arriving; welcoming them back to HH.

We are still wrestling with the Muggle PDF file-creator, so haven't as much for you as we'd hoped. However, if you plan on teaching Dragon Study, there is now a letterhead (From the Desk of Charlie Weasley) that you are welcome to use. As always, try to have your letters reflect the personalities of the Professors who send them. Check the Classrooms for more files every so often. Once the PDF curse has been lifted, there shall be a flood of them for your use.

"Ah, music, a magic beyond all we do here! And now, bedtime. Off you trot!"



  1. Oh, thank you! I would have forgotten if you hadn't posted this! Now we have our lyrics printed and ready for singing tomorrow morning! My kids are SO excited. I have the dining table set with candlesticks, books, cauldrons, wands and pets (including a small dragon who's guarding the table so no tries to begin early). We're beginning with the first part of a Transfiguration lesson (turning peas into lunch, rather complicated, but I'll help). Then we'll plant pea seeds and learn about the enchanted history of peas for Herbology, and do a Potions lesson (Invisibility Crystals). We'll also review our first DADA lesson, which the students received in advance.

    I really hope they love it!

  2. Hi again! Just a note to let you know our first day went beautifully, and the kids can't wait to do more! Thank you for all your helpful ideas! I had so much fun writing the professors' letters. :)
