My Dear Students,
Welcome to the School for Exceptionally Talented Wizards! Such a pleasure it is to see your faces glowing with the brilliance of intelligence and curiosity as you experience the magic and wonder around you.

What better way can you live your life, than to be filled with the joy of discovery every day?
