Here are some pictures from the Open House

Slanty Sue who took a bludger to the head and now has trouble delivering mail without it arriving a bit... mangled.

Abernathy and the Sorting Hat. Abernathy is Professor Cerulia Maple's familiar and now the head of the Owlry.

There is a LOT of stuff on this table! It is the collection of supplies you receive with your first payment
and it isn't even everything!

This is Professor Scarlet Stone's antique writing box with some very special additions:
Raven feathers, iron nails, Egyptian papyrus, a deerskin leather journal, and Self-Transformation potion kits.

A TERRIFYING class

Today we challenged our students to face their fears, and brought in a Boggart for them to defeat. 


 Don't worry! We were there to charm it away in case things got out of hand.

 You will be happy to know that despite how truly terrifying the creature was, it was defeated by our students without hesitation.

We've redecorated the classroom!

We are very pleased to show off our new look in time for the new fall semester.

 This is the view as you enter the room.

 Our tea-table now sits in the north-west.

 A gorgeous owl-feather mobile graces our east corner.

 A cascade of flowers in the west corner.

A fiery dragon protects us above our door in the south.
