Off to School-That's a Wrap

Postby Sky Alton » Sun Oct 01, 2017 12:09 am

We’ve reached the end of the activity! (I can’t quite believe it but it’s true)

It’s been truly incredible to see all the participation from so many different HOLers, new and old . Actually, there are so many of you (well over 40) that listing you all was just too daunting a task but hopefully you know who you are!

It’s also really brought home just how important the community is to this place and all the things HOL has to offer those people in return. I hope everyone who took part, whether they did all the challenges or just a couple, found this useful or at least had some fun along the way. We’ll be collecting together all the stats for who did what and should be awarding you your well-deserved beans in the next week or so.

It wouldn’t have been possible without the people who helped put it together so massive, massive thanks to the rest of the team: Aurelia, Katelin, Gail and Kendra (and to head students Max and Ariella for lending their support). This really was a HOL-wide effort from people of all years and all houses.

Looking forward to seeing you all around the halls of HOL in the future!

Thank you for all the time and effort you put into planning and running Off to School, Sky! Thanks to Aurelia, Katelin, Gail, and Kendra for the puzzles and forum activities too! There was an excellent mix of tasks and it was nice to be on IRC for something non-Quidditch related. I wish I could have made it on for a round of Articulate, but I guess I'll have to wait until next time!

Great start to the year and see everyone around!

Sky, thank you and your cohorts for coming up with this idea and corralling everyone into helping and putting on a great event. :)

I had a great time playing in the different Houses and on your IRC games. A good time all around!

Yes thank you Sky it was really fun. (even if I didn't get to complete everything.) It was a wonderful way to carry us through to the beginning of the new year/term.

Thank you so much for this activity! It was definitely a lot of fun. I still really liked the chat parties because I got to actually interact with people I normally don't have the chance to interact with, and it was wonderful! I would love to see something like this happen again next year. You did a fantastic job!

Just to let everyone know that all beans should now have been awarded. If you think I haven't given you the right number or that you should have gotten some and didn't, please just drop me a message so I can double check. :D I now know that over 40 people took part

Also, thank you so much to everyone who's replied to this thread !
