House Points

1995 - 1996 [Y15 - Y16]

Who, When, Why, and How Many...

student: Harry
teacher: Umbridge
points taken: -10
reason: "Hmmm, let's think...maybe Lord Voldemort?"
notes: Hermione had started an argument by pointing out that the course aims didn't cover application of the theory, and the rest of the class joined in. Harry lost the points by parrying the question of what the students could possibly think was waiting for them out in the real world.
ref: OP12

student: Hermione
teacher: Grubbly-Plank
points given: +10
reason: for identifying Bowtruckles, and also what they eat
notes: awarded by 5 points first for correctly identifying them, then 5 more for identifying the woodlice as their food
ref: OP13

student: Hermione
teacher: Umbridge
points taken: -5
reason: "For disrupting my class with pointless interruptions"
notes: Hermione had to hush Harry to keep him from getting involved as she questioned Umbridge's teaching methods.
ref: OP15

student: Angelina
teacher: McGonagall
points taken: -5

ref: OP15

student: Harry
teacher: McGonagall
points taken: -5
reason: because detention had had no effect

ref: OP15

student: Harry, Ron, Neville
teacher: Snape
points taken: -10
reason: He thought the three of them were fighting, not realizing that the other two were holding Neville back from attacking Draco Malfoy with his bare hands. Not that that would have sounded any better.
notes: Draco made what he thought was a throwaway comment about the closed ward in St. Mungo's, and Neville wasn't about to stand for that.
ref: OP17
