Mischief Managed At The Blue Coat School

Published on isbi School News dated Wednesday 9th of February 2022

Started in 2014 by Bloomsbury, Harry Potter Book Nights take place across the world in February, as schools, libraries, bookshops and friends host their own celebratory events. 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and so the theme this year was 'Magical Journeys', reflecting the magical journey that the Harry Potter books have taken so many millions of people on since the first book was published on the 26th June 1997.

For pupils at The Blue Coat school, it was the second time they had celebrated and a magical evening was arranged by School Librarian Ms Stacey in the Dining Hall. Children from Year 2 through to Year 6 attended in different sessions and enjoyed butterbeer milkshake and edible golden snitches before engaging in games, quizzes and a craft ably led by staff including Hogwarts very own Professor Dumbledore (Mrs Creaton) and Professor McGonagall (Mrs Redfern).

There were some really wonderful costumes on display as Harrys, Rons and Hermiones mixed with Dobbys, Dumbledores and even a dementor! Zane in Year 2 was a wonderful Lucius Malfoy complete with long blond hair and a snake headed wand. There were a sea of brave Gryffindor students in Year 3 but Ruby as Hermione, with her trademark bushy hair, really stood out and in Year 4 Jayden was an amazing Dobby. The effort made by Year 5s and 6s was outstanding but the best dressed awards went to Jai in Year 5 as Sirius Black complete with prison chains and an absolutely unrecognisable Rayan as Hagrid who won in Year 6.

An enjoyable night was had by all before the dining hall once more returned to its everyday use - mischief managed!
