Winners never quidditch

Feb. 3, 2020 | Today marks the second day of Carnivallarmus and our house spirit is loud enough to make Moaning Myrtle jealous!

Although our morning got off to a quiet start with a sleep-in and late brunch, the energy quickly built as students assembled in front of School House for our age-old inter-house competitions. Keeping with the Harry Potter theme, a relay race was organized on the field that had students racing on brooms between each station as they completed a myriad of challenges. A tug of war competition brought the intensity up yet again as small groups competed in a round-robin tournament. Each house proudly wore their colours and got creative in their expression of carnival spirit, with some bringing instruments, flags, or canine companions to rally team support. After a lunch consisting of student-requested dishes (poutine, hot dogs, and butterbeer), students enjoyed an afternoon of sports including a chaotic and incredibly popular muggle reimagination of quidditch. Of course, we carried on the Carnival-staple ice dancing competition which drew crowds of cheering spectators to our frigid Memorial Arena. But the fun doesn't end there! After supper, we will be holding a lip sync battle in the Student Centre followed by the 'Crystal Ball' as we finish the evening on the dance floor.

Be sure to check Flickr tomorrow for plenty of photos of the day's activities! In the meantime, watch our Instagram story for clips of all the excitement!
