Welcome to ‘Off to School’, the activity designed to get you through the first month of term here at Hol!
Are you a new student wondering where to go? A not-so new student wondering what there is to do aside from homework? An old hand just looking to have some fun during August and September? This activity is for you! Until 30 September, we’ll be putting up fun challenges, hosting chat parties and playing plenty of games, all themed around HOL and Harry Potter. If you have any burning questions about the many wonderful aspects of HOL, hopefully you’ll find your answers here. And if you don’t…there’s fun to be had and beans to be earned so it’s worth sticking around.
To kick things off, we’re going to play some ice-breaker games to get to know each other better and discover some fun facts about our classmates (or even our professors). Here on the forum, we’ll be getting inquisitive with Ask Me and discussing what drew us here. Come join in!
There are more games to be found in each of the house Common Rooms…
Gryffindor have got the packing covered
Slytherin will be helping us discover what we have in common
Ravenclaw will be kicking things off with a magical guessing game
And Hufflepuff are getting devious with Two Truthes and a Lie
Whether you’re a badger, an eagle, a snake or a lion, you are welcome in all the other houses common rooms. If you want to participate in all Hol has to offer, registering for an account on all 4 is a must!
And as if you needed any more convincing, each of the houses are also hosting their own challenge where you can earn beans!
Hufflepuff are asking you to piece together a jigsaw
Ravenclaw are getting wordy with a word search
Slytherin are tempting us with a visual Sudoku
And Gryffindor are getting creative with crests
We’re doing the same right here on the forum and will be continuing to post new challenges every week until the end of the activity. Everything will be due in on 30 September, 11.59 PM Hol-time so join in whenever and keep checking back!
Our next chat party is scheduled for Saturday the 2nd of September between 8 (eight) PM and 12 AM (midnight) Hol-Time (that’s British Standard time). For more details on how to join us, check out the info thread!
