Setting: During the first several lessons, time has been taken for getting a basic use of intermediate charms. You have all worked hard on learning basic movements and incantations for your charms, but studying them in books will only get you so far. Now, its time to actually learn and practice them!
This class is taking place on a nice mid-afternoon day on the grounds to give you the opportunity to do just that. There is a large fire-pit surrounded safely by stones, with several benches where students can sit and roast marshmallows from, or chat with their classmates. Des of course stands near a table, unpacking all sorts of things that will be useful for you and the afternoon. From goodies and treats to essentials (like cups and plates), things get stacked and sorted as she waits for her students to head on out.
There is an objective board which lists several tasks to be done with Charms:
- Gather Firewood (if you get lost, you have a compass..)
- Start a Fire
- Summon a Roasting Stick
- Make a glass of Juice - just add water
- Make Giant Marshmallows - or Tiny ones!
- Clean up your mess [/align]

Des had moved to Hogsmeade several years ago when she had accepted the position in Ravenclaw House. She had remembered fondly walking down the streets with her friends, who became like family; sneaking out on a Friday night just to see if they could grab an ice cream, or a cup of tea. There were so many good memories of the town that she relished, and hoped that her own daughter would find the same, when she was of a school age but the reality was that was several years off and Des was concerned about her childs education and development. She had left a very cultural area, where there were academic schools of excellence for younglings with culture,, history an books... so many books. Her earliest memories of growing up were the stories and the books and she wanted Judith to fall as in love with the written word as she had. So, she had a plan to petition the town to purchase an old victorian house and turn it into a library, reminiscent of those from her past. Problem was that she had no idea how to make it happen, so she figured the first thing to do would be to get public opinion. So, while Des had the chance, she stood near the playground, offering out parchments with the idea, and speaking to locals about signing her petition.Whitney Singleton

Thirty years ago, when I was just a young girl, the most remarkable and amazing movie drifted onto the main stage of the theatre. There was magic, and song, and dance, and friendship and adventures into a world that promised to dazzle all. We can experience the wonder and magic of knowing what it is to be that stubborn, teenager who accidentally does something they aught not do and has to deal with the consequences -- finding your own inner strength as you go.
With the 30th anniversary of the movie Labyrinth this year, and the passing of the wonderful David Bowie, we present to you Ravenclaw Pride's Theme for this House Pride Event.
Enjoy the magic.
