My post on Goodreads. It is all tasks linked to the arrival at Hogwarts
Ends May 31st
The primary mode of transportation to Hogwarts is the Hogwarts Express(1) that students take at the start of each school year. Readers board the train from Platform 9¾(2) at King's Cross station in London(3). The train leaves at 11:00 am and arrives at Hogsmeade Station, near Hogwarts, some time after nightfall.(4)
From there, first-year(5) Readers are accompanied by the Keeper of the Keys(6), Game(7) and Grounds – or another suitable teacher(8) if he is absent – to small boats, which magically sail across the lake(9) and get them near the entrance of Hogwarts. The older(10) Readers ride up to the castle in carriages pulled by creatures(11) called Thestrals who are invisible(12) to the pupils that have not witnessed death. When the first-year readers initially arrive at the castle, they wait in a small(13)chamber off the entrance hall until the older readers have taken their seats(14), and then enter the Great Hall for the Sorting Ceremony to determine their House assignments.(15)
