First let me extend the warmest of welcomes to all of our new staff members! It's an honour to have you all on board, and I can't wait to get to know everyone. In fact, would any of you be interested in coming to my office for tea before the Easter holidays? It would be lovely to have you.
To all of you students, and not just the ones in my house, I have a question! As you know, back in the beginning of the year when I became Head of Hufflepuff, I mentioned taking the house on a field trip as celebration! Well, one thing or another has delayed it but I'm finally putting the plans into serious... well, planning. And I have decided to make it a school-wide field trip!
But of course, I am the Home Economics Professor, so I will be incorporating teaching into it, so you all get to experience how wonderful my class is! And then you may sign up for it... But I digress.
I need a few ideas! What are some muggle places you would be interested in visiting, that you think would be relevant to Home Economics? I would love to have your suggestions. I was definitely considering a Muggle tea house, so you can see how they make tea! As well as perhaps a few electronic stores, to allow you to spend muggle money for budgeting lessons- you will of course be able to keep anything you buy.
But please, do give me ideas, I need them. I would also very much appreciate volunteers for chaperoning, just to keep an extra eye on the students, if anyone is interested.
And finally, Homework! Recent events have inspired me to give everyone something a little different, and while it's not particularly relevant to Home Economics, I would still like you to all write an essay on who you admire most. I think it ties in nicely with parents day as well as us acquiring new staff! I would like for it to be around ten inches, and it is due after the holidays, so you have plenty of time!
Oh look at me rambling on, I do apologize. Nevertheless, that is all! Happy early Easter, everyone!
