Farlington muggles get magical for Potter's 20th anniversary

Pupils celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter with a special assembly

Posted by Hannah Vickers | July 15, 2017 | School life

Farlington Senior School recently celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the publication of The Philosopher’s Stone with a special assembly dedicated to JK Rowling’s Harry Potter, organised by Professor Cox. Professor Farman gave a ‘Harrius Potter’ reading in Latin, and pupils Megan Rimer and Sofia Corsi read out some of their favourite passages too. 

Professor Walker-Smith lamented his lack of standard-issue wand at Farlington compared to his previous school, (Hogwarts – some of you may have heard of it).

With the help of Professor Guédes-Wright (who it turns out is a master wand-maker) and first-year Saffron Hill-Chambers, a powerful spell was cast on all the muggles present to turn them into fluent linguists. Soon they were understanding passages in French, Italian, Spanish and German like they were natives! 

Librarian, Madam Stonestreet, organised displays of costumes and Harry Potter YouTube clips in Farlington’s Mansion House Library and, next week, House Challenge Day will be Harry Potter-themed, too.

Farlington truly is a magical place!
