History of Magic: Learning From Those Who Have Passed On

  • Dear History of Magic Students at Aurantiaco Academy of Magic,

    In my correspondence with a professor at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the United Kingdom, I was intrigued to discover that the History of Magic teacher at their school is a ghost. Wouldn’t it be interesting to hear the stories directly from those who lived during these great events?

    It is with this in mind that we have created a field trip to the Harry P. Leu Gardens. For one night each year, the gardens invite the local ghosts to tell their stories to a historian, who relays the stories to both muggles and wizards alike. (Please remember that the Muggles believe these are works of fiction. Any attempt to tell them otherwise would be considered a violation of the International Statute of Secrecy and will be punished accordingly.)

    The gardens open at 6:00PM and stories begin at 7:30PM. Tickets are only sold at the event and do sell out, so please arrive early if you plan to attend. The cost is $10 for adults, $5.00 for children (ages 17 and under.) Some light food (snacks, hot dogs, drinks, etc.) will be sold at the event. Bring a blanket or chair to sit on.

    As a special treat for those older students, we have worked with the government to combine this with their Auror Training program. This will count for the Logic and Study portion of the program.

    Please be sure to RSVP to the event here and/or on Facebook so the professors know to keep an eye out for you.

    Warm regards,

    Principal Mathilda Cackle
