On Thursday 23rd October Zeus House were led into a darkened Purple Circle, eerily adorned with glowing witches’ hats, illuminated pumpkins and smoking witches cauldrons.
Head Witch, Mrs Howard, introduced the group to Mad Doctor Wolverson whilst Science Witch, Mrs Lovegrove, brewed explosive potions.
Mad Doctor discussed the difference between horror and terror then read one of the Halloween short story competition entries to the hushed audience, with screams spookily echoing in the background. He followed this with an extract from the book ‘The Woman in Black’.
Head Witch then reminded students about safe Trick or Treating and the importance of respecting houses displaying posters requesting no callers. She also invited students interested in playing in the school quidditch team to see Mr Vanstone at lunchtime.
Please stay safe this Halloween and Bonfire Night.
