Harry Potter turns 20!

Harry Potter 20

Monday 26 June 2017 was the 20th anniversary of the magic beginning. Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone was published on that date in 1996!

Postcards to share magical memories of first reading Harry Potter, a display and lots of wizarding worksheets, we really were the place to be to celebrate the date.

Staff and pupils were invited to pick up a postcard from the library desk today and we now have a very colourful string of postcards on display in the library.

Great fun was to be had during lunchtime for our wee ‘spell’ of HarryPotter20 magic and Mrs Stewart joined in too. Her favourite magical memory: reading Harry in Spanish!

Our great time with HarryPotter20 ended with a request for a Harry Potter book club. Mrs Toonen donned her Invisibilty Cloak fast!
