I'm sure we all thank Miss Professor Carrow for her adept demonstration of the Cruciatus Curse. Miss Calderwood has been escorted to Hogsmeade Station along with the younger students who are not staying for the Yule Ball and the rest of holidays.

Those students remaining, I'd like to remind anyone who might be in need that Madam Pomfrey is available in the hospital wing throughout the day today. Just in case.

And as always, the Prefects and YPL Counsellors who are staying are also here to help answer any questions or concerns students may have.

Now, I hope everyone will be able to put this unfortunate incident behind us in order to present ourselves as gracious hosts for the Yule Ball this evening.

Champions, please be in the Entrance Hall with your escorts by five minutes to seven. Dinner begins promptly as soon as you are presented and seated.

CCF participants, remember that we have a final meeting this afternoon at 3:00 in the Great Hall.

Avery, we're meeting at 2:00, according to my book.

Please immediately turn in any and all copies of this 'School-Wide Quiz' to your nearest Prefect.

If you have any information about who created or distributed this mean-spirited and frankly disgusting document, please seek any of us out to pass your comments along in total privacy.

There is NO NEED to discuss this incident in the journals!

I gave Trinculus a note today about prefects being able to Crusiate us students. It said

I think that prefects should not be able to Crusiate students because it is a very strong punishment. Prefects can take away house points but they cant give you detention, because they aren't teachers and so they might be unfair. Sometimes Cruciatus is a good way to punish somebody because then they won't mess up again, but it also hurts alot. So teachers should be the only ones allowed to Crusiate students.

I wanted to put this in my journal so that everybody knows my opinion about it. Some of the Huff lot were saying that Slytherins were mean and just wanted to go around Crusiating everybody but that isn't true because I don't and I bet other Slytherins don't either.

At the Prefects' regular meeting this week, one of the subjects touched upon was a certain incident which took place during the first year Hufflepuff Transfiguration class on Wednesday, involving the administration of the Cruciatus Curse. This led in turn to a rather wide-ranging discussion amongst the Prefects about school discipline in general, and in particular, the role which the Prefects and especially the Head Boy and Head Girl should take in helping maintain proper school order and discipline.

The various House Prefects, Head Boy, and Head Girl are all chosen by the Headmistress and staff to serve as proper examples for the rest of the student body, and to provide leadership when needed. In certain situations, when staff are not present, we are authorised to act as proxy for certain school functions, i.e., directing students in an emergency, docking school points for infractions of school rules, etc.

As the older students are undoubtedly aware, the notion has been periodically raised that in order to help maintain order, the Head Boy and Head Girl should be authorised (as the school Professors are) to administer the Cruciatus Curse when necessary to enforce adherence to the school Code of Conduct. Needless to say, we would expect this authority to be invoked on only very rare occasions. It has been rather a point of vexation for the Prefects that this subject seems to keep coming up each year without ever being quite settled. Consequently, the Head Boy Ned Pennifold and the Head Girl Susan Yaxley have decided to hold a formal debate on the issue, leading to an up and down vote amongst the prefects to settle the question, once and for all.

The resolution shall read: Be it RESOLVED: That the Head Boy and Head Girl of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are authorised to administer the Cruciatus Curse to students when necessary to enforce the student Code of Conduct.

Two prefects will present the case for each side. Xi Chang (Ravenclaw) and Serena Laverty (Slytherin) shall argue for the affirmative. Heidi MacAvoy (Hufflepuff) and I have volunteered to argue for the negative. This debate shall take place at the prefects' meeting a week from this coming Wednesday. You are invited to offer your comments on the Resolution to your House prefects, who will in turn pass these comments along to the two sides arguing the question. Please give the matter your careful consideration and let your voice be heard. We will consider your input to be crucial in helping us to finally resolve this important issue.
