Brief Summary:
Welcome to Glenfield School of Magic where you can explore the wonders of the Special Interest Areas!!!
E-Permission Active What is this?
Additional Information

Come join the State Special Interest Area (SIA) Team on an adventure to discover the magic of what an SIA can be. You will take a journey through our magical classes to uncover new and exciting ideas that can inspire your own SIA projects.

In your Houses, you'll work your way around our supernatural bases, meet some fantastic beasts, play Quidditch, and bewitch robots just to name a few.

Our Great Hall will keep you fed all weekend so you can focus on expanding your horizons. 

Leaders will meet with their Head of House in the Teacher's Lounge to explore how to support our young wizards and witches on their SIA journey. While our witches and wizards in training will go flying off to Hogsmeade for their own goal setting adventure.

So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets for the Glenfield Express, pack your cauldron and ready your wands as we set off on an adventure like no other to the Glenfield School of Magic!

Please note: Parents are reminded that students may not bring an owl, cat or a toad...

Do Leaders need to accompany their Youth Members?

For the Joey Scout, Cub Scout and Scout sections, yes Leaders and/or Adult Helpers need to accompany their Youth Members.

Please Note: There will not be any cabin accommodation available at this event.

What do I need to bring?

Dressing up on theme is encouraged! All overnight participants will be required to bring their own camping gear.

When can I arrive at the event?

Is the event catered?

Will Youth Members complete a Special Interest Area (SIA) Project on this event?

No. This event will provide opportunities for Youth Members to explore the six SIAs in new and exciting ways.
