Harry Potter Club

Earlier this year a few students started the Harry Potter Club. It began as a way for fans of the series to form a bond and be able to discuss the books and movies. They decided to make their own wands during their club meetings. This was the first major project they decided to do.

Senior club president April Merritt said that she was surprised when she moved here and Capital didn’t have a Harry Potter club. She was a fan of the series and would find ways to tie all of her school projects back to it.

“Capital just needed a Harry Potter Club,” Merritt said.

The club decided to start doing crafts and thought a good way to start would be by making their own wands. They thought it would be fun to have their own that were similar to those in the book.

“It seemed like a fun way  to celebrate our own part of this fantasy world,” Merritt said.

One of her favorite parts of the club was the opportunity to have fun and be silly. The club often played games such as pictionary, charades, headbands, or trivia games.

“One thing we all did was find out what houses we are, I don’t think we have any Slytherins,” Merritt said.

Even though Merritt started the club, she will graduate and have to leave it next year. She believes that the next president may try to make a quidditch team.

“I know people at Borah do it, and if she started one, then Capital could have another sport,” Merritt said.
