Last Wednesday, 30th October, we celebrated the spookiest and most terrifying night of the year: Halloween! But the theme this year, Hogwarts and the magical worlds of Harry Potter, meant that our students from Gondomar School were looking forward to enjoying and diving into this bewitched event without being afraid at all.
Our gym was transformed into Hogwarts castle itself, artistically recreating the classrooms and subjects from the famous saga of books and films: Herbology, Potions, Transfiguration, Divination, the Forbidden Forest and the Quidditch pitch. In each area, Primary students could do different magical activities and games which were masterfully conducted by our 6th Primary students, accompanied by some of Hogwarts teachers.
Thanks to the annual costume contest we witnessed wizards, witches, sorcerers and all kinds of magical creatures or horrifying monsters. Even the Dark Lord and followers of You-Know-Who made an appearance! We could also observe curious characters in the hall of portraits in the staircase, as well as participate in the Honeydukes sweet shop contest and Ollivanders wand contest, whose winners were awarded a well-deserved prize.
We hope you spent a very magical Halloween and, on behalf of Gondomar School and the English Department, we would like to thank you all for your enthusiasm, participation and involvement in the event.
