House Information and Sorting @ 08:03 pm

Sorting: On the first night that students arrive on school grounds, first year students are handed a plain white, circular badge. After dinner, the first years are rounded up and brought to the front of the hall. One at a time, students place their badge in a black velvet bag that is held by the headmaster. The headmaster closes the bag, gives it one good shake, and then retrieves the badge from inside the bag. The white badge will have transformed into one of the house badges, indicating where that student will best fit. The head master pins the badge to the students clothes and sends them to sit with their new housemates.
