Since it was considered improper for young ladies to walk about without chaperon's, Hogwarts provides chaperons through teachers and Head of Houses as well as other staff members. They are assigned to a location and whomever wants to go to that particular location will be escorted there in a group. Seeing as the groups could be rather large, it would be easy to escape from the chaperon's view, though is greatly frowned upon and could result in a detention. Third years and higher are allowed to go on the excursions. Students who have written permission from their parents/guardians are allowed to visit their families in Hogsmeade if there is a good reason, such as a family emergency, a wedding, or a funeral. As a note, students are not
allowed to leave school for events like family dinners.
O.W.L.s are tests taken by all fifth years.
N.E.W.T.s are tests taken by all seventh years.
Quidditch game and House Cup outcomes are decided OOC by coin flips. Characters are more than welcome to play these outcomes out. The bolded house names are the winners of the match.
To apply for a quidditch position, simply post in maintenance
claiming that position. First years are not accepted as players at this time.
