Bendigo Council decided today to go ahead with the $20 million redevelopment of Sacred Heart Cathedral that will see it turned into the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Next year the school will be introducing be introducing classes for gifted students. Defense Against the Dark Arts class will be developed to cater to the over whelming number of redheads and adopted students from Long Gully who suffer bullying. “Finally a class that will cater to my needs” said 14 year old John Measley.
Warner Bros. also announced that parts of the new Harry Potter movie: ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them – Parts 2 and 3’ will be shot at the redeveloped school. Parts of Rosland Park will be used as the Forbidden Forest also. This is expected to bring in more $2 million into the local economy over the next 2 years.
To celebrate, the Marilyn Monroe statue will be dressed up as Harry Potter and wear giant glasses, Hogwarts Uniform and a lightning bolt scar on Marilyn Monroe’s forehead.
Bendigo’s biggest Potter fan Mary Clunes is excited with the news “I’m excited with the news”.
