Finding magic at the After School Program

A couple weeks ago an extraordinary spell was cast on the After School Program. Ealing Public School was transformed into Hogwarts and all its students into witches and wizards.

Each student got their very own wand and broomstick before being sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw.

We feasted on Polyjuice Potion (i.e., chicken noodle soup) and got “bean boozled “ sampling some of those Bertie Botts Every Flavoured Beans.

We competed against our rival houses in Quidditch, mastered Potions with Professor Snape, and even caught a glimpse of Harry Potter himself!

It’s hard to believe that all this could happen here in London, but in the words of Roald Dahl, “those who don’t believe in magic will never find it”.
