  • Headmaster Albus Dumbledore warned the students during his welcoming speech to report anything to a teacher that seemed out of the ordinary.
  • An unknown person meddled with the Vault of Ice. It made the cursed ice that once threatened the school to spread once again, trapping Ben Copper and prompting a search for him by both teachers and students.
  • Throughout the year, the students witness the ice spreading throughout the castle, including in the Astronomy Tower, and several students are injured trying to put a stop to it.
