Local school holds festivities before leaving for half-term

On Tuesday October 18th, Holy Family Catholic Primary School in Barrow-in-Furness is having their annual Hogwarts day.

The children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite characters, all of their lessons will be themed to reflect the festivities and the school will be fantastically decorated.

There will be a range of interactive games and activities for the children to enjoy as well as an after school fair, where family can join in, look around and enjoy a snack.

The Headteacher of Holy Family Catholic Primary School, Rachel Porter said:

"We have been enjoying a magical Hogwarts Day for the last 5 years. Our whole school dresses up as Hogwarts Students whilst the Teachers also enjoy dressing up as Professors. The school is decorated and our library is transformed into Hogwarts and even has floating candles.


"During the day, the children enjoy taking part in a variety of magical activities including potion making, quidditch and flying lessons. Our Key Stage 2 children walked to the amphitheater and used their iPads to help create magical flying photographs and reverse videos.


"This year we also held Muggles Mayhem after school to help raise money for our school. It was an amazing event which was enjoyed by all of our families and it was very popular. Our Year 6 children helped to set up the Fayre and created their own Harry Potter themed games. The chocolate and bottle tombolas were very popular! Some of our talented teachers were face painting while in other classrooms there were a variety of themed arts and crafts activities including creating your very own Dobby’s sock."
