It was time again the return of students for the start of the year. Students had arrived moments before getting seated in their houses while they waited for Professor Black to get the first years ready to be sorted. The rest of the staff all sat at the front table watching over the students with warm smiles and welcoming auras about them. Once the older students were seated and talking amongst themselves Professor Black walked in carrying a stool and familiar hat placing it carefully in front of the long staff table. “Alright First years this way once I call your name you’ll take a seat here to be sorted into your houses.”his voice rang out calmly as the first years began timidly making their way forward lining up. Professor Black watched them all amused then with a clear voice began calling out the names of the students. With each student the hat rang out their house causing applause and cheers to ring out as new students joined the tables. Once all the students had been seated the headmistress stood up a warm smile upon her face. “Welcome back everyone I hope yours summers were well! Now you older students know the rules but I will announce again that the dark forest is closed to all students. You are to be in bed at the appropriate times and students may not roam the halls during the night. Now there’s a few more things we need to address but those shall wait until after the feast!”she called clapping her hands once as food filled the tables and goblets filled with drinks.
