Arriving at the castle, they're 'welcomed' by Peeves with water bombs. McGonagall leads them to the Great Hall. Tables are already set for dinner and they sit down. Colin Creevey is at the table. His brother Dennis will enter this year. The new students enter and the Sorting Ceremony starts. The Sorting Hat sings it's song. The new students are divided. In Ravenclaw go Stewart Ackerley and Orla Quirke. In Slytherin go Malcolm Baddock and Graham Pritchard. In Hufflepuff, Eleanor Branstone, Owen Cauldwell, Laura Madley and Kevin Whitby and in Gryffindor Dennis Creevey and Natalie McDonald. Also sorted out is Emma Dobbs. Professor Dumbledore has dinner started. Nearly Headless Nick tells them Peeves made trouble earlier that evening, scaring all the House-elves. Hermione is upset to hear there are House-elves working at Hogwarts. Dumbledore has a few more announcements. Filch has asked him to tell everyone that the list of forbidden objects has been extended to include Screaming Yo-yos, Fanged Frisbees and Ever-Bashing Boomerangs. Furthermore, the inter-house Quidditch Cup will not take place this year. At that moment The new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher comes in. It is Moody. Dumbledore continues to announce that instead of the Quidditch Cup, this year the Triwizard Tournament will take place. The schools Beauxbatons and Durmstrang will join the event. There have been several attempts over the centuries to reinstate the Tournament, without success. Now, the Department of International Magical Co-operation and the Department of Magical Games and Sports decided the time is ripe. The other schools will arrive in October and the selection of the school champions will be at Halloween. There's a thousand Galleons prize money. To participate, students must be seventeen years or older. Dumbledore dismisses the students and everybody goes to the dormitory. Fred and George, who won't be seventeen yet, want to enter anyway, thinking that an Aging Potion might help. The new password is "Balderdash"
