Background Information on the Ministry of Magic:The Ministry of Magic was founded in the late 1600s. It was created to regulateand enforce laws for the magical community, as well as keeping this community hiddenfrom the Muggle World. Also, each country had its own ministry to govern it. Forexample, Germany, Bulgaria, Norway, United Kingdom, etc. It is made up of severaldifferent departments as well. Like the Department of Magical Law Enforcement,Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, Magical Accidents and Catastrophes,Mysteries, and Magical Games and Sports. Finally, the one person that is in control of allof these aspects that make of the Ministry is the Minister.Topic I: Protection of Harry PotterNovember 1st, 1981, James and Lily Potter were murdered by Voldemort, butbecause of Lily’s self-sacrifice, Harry survived. Once Dumbledore learned of Harry’ssurvival, he sent Hagrid to rescue Harry and take him to the Dursley house on PrivetDrive. The Dursley’s wanted nothing to do with Harry, because Mrs. Petunia Dursleysaw magic as nonsense and that Lily was a freak. Once Lily and James graduatedHogwarts, they went to work for the Order of Phoenix. Voldemort tried to recruit Lilyand James as Death Eaters, both were reluctant. The got married later that year andbecame pregnant with Harry. Both Harry and Neville were born with the characteristicsto fulfill the prophecy. When Voldemort learned of this he tried to kill Harry. Monthsbefore the Potter’s were attacked, Severus Snape, a death eater (at the time), warnedDumbledore and the Potters of Voldemort planning the attack. He desperately tried toprotect Lily since he was secretly in love with her. The Potters went into hiding atGodric’s Hollow. A Fidelius Charm, a protection charm made by the secret keeper, wascasted to hide the house and the family inside. The place that the charm is casted, makesthe place invisible to everybody until the secret keeper tells somebody. However PeterPettigrew, a servant of Voldemort, told Voldemort the Potter’s hiding spot.With the recent attack at the Ministry of Magic, 10 people were killed and 40prisoners of Azkaban, who were on trial, escaped. We believe that this was ordered byVoldemort. Even though there has been no sign of Voldemort, it has been confirmed thata group of Death Eaters are after Harry Potter and Neville to kill them, before one ofthem can fulfill the prophecy and kill Voldemort. Neville is currently with hisgrandmother and Harry is with his aunt and uncle. The Death Eaters are getting closerto finding the boys and will kill them, when they get the chance. The Dursley Family is atrisk of also being attacked and magic being exposed to the muggle world. Harry Potter isstill unaware that he is a wizard and does not know what happened to his parents. Withtensions rising, and time against the ministry, a plan needs to be created quickly to3

insure the highest amount of protection available. Dumbledore has recently suggestedHarry being under his protection, while the MInistry of Magic has turned that down,stating it was “too risky for other children and obvious.”Questions to Consider:1. Is the Order of Phoenix a good possible place to put Harry because they areconstantly moving around? Why or why not?2. What actions should be taken if Voldemort tries to attack again?3. Who should be responsible for Harry?4. Who, if anyone should tell Harry Potter about the magic world and his parents?5. What measures should be taken to protect both Neville and Harry, since theyboth fit the prophecy?6. Should Harry and Neville be protected together or kept apart?7. Where are some other possible places to keep Harry and Neville safe? Why wouldthey be good spots to keep them protected?Topic II: Prevention of AttackThe Magic World has stayed hidden for thousands of years from Muggles.However, if Harry Potter or Neville are killed then there is nobody to stop Voldemortfrom venturing into the muggle world to kill people. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft andWizardry is protected by a type of Muggle-Repelling Charm. This charm causes an areato be unseen by Muggles or causes it to be undesirable for them to enter. Also, Hogwartslooks like an extremely run-down ruin with a creepy “Keep Out” sign to Muggles andthat made it undesirable.One way that we, the Ministry of Magic, have been debatingabout is how we could prevent another attack by Voldemort would be to use hisweaknesses against him. Dumbledore explained to the Ministry that his greatestweaknesses is that he doesn’t fully understand magic. He is also afraid of only one personin the entire wizard world: Albus Dumbledore. So that is why he then starts to take toover because Dumbledore is no longer a threat. Lastly, he is believes that death is theabsolute worst fate, and that is why he goes to such great lengths seeking immortality.We have taken measures to prevent another attack by spreading awareness ofVoldemort and what the Death Eaters are capable of. We have also put a Fidelius Charmon very important wizards both in the ministry and wizard world. However, there arewizards in the ministry who are secretly death eaters, 100 death eaters have beenfound, but there are an estimated 500 death eaters who are involved in the ministryright now. This is why our solutions have not worked because they have been leaked toVoldemort. We must act quickly before they can figure out all of our secrets. Also to4

prevent the Muggles knowledge of the Magic World.We must become united to save ourworld.Questions to Consider:1. Should we be concerned about securing Hogwarts?2. How do we calm the muggles and secure their world to stop it from mixing withours?3. Should we be hunting for Voldemort?4. How can we use Voldemort’s weaknesses to our advantage?5. How do we to find the Death Eaters in the Ministry? What should theirpunishments be and how can we insure that our solutions will not be passed on toVoldemort.Works Cited/Links to ling Charmhttp://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Memory Charmhttp://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Lord lines/essays/timeline lhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ministry of Magic5

Sample Position PaperPlease remember that this is just a sample to help you with how the whole thing should “flow.” Feelfree to add more information that could be useful. Please do not copy this, as that would beconsidered plagiarism.Committee: Harry Potter CommitteePerson: Petunia DursleyDelegate: Jane DoeSchool: Little Pebble Elementary SchoolBackground Information:Petunia Dursley is a very nosy, and stuck up woman whose goal is to appear normal. She wasborn in the 1950s to a muggle family. She had a younger sister, Lily, who was born a witch. After hersister left for Hogwarts, she broke off contact with her, but after Lily and her husband, James, weremurdered by Lord Voldemort, she took in their child named Harry. Before all of this she marriedVernon Dursley and together they had a son and named him Dudley. She was always very jealous ofher sister and hated everything to do with the wizarding world.Topic I: Protection of Harry Potter:I, Petunia, believe that Harry should be protected even though I have very strong feelingstoward magic. He should be kept somewhere where they actually know how to deal with his powers.Our family is no match for this. So I feel that if Harry were to live with someone in the wizarding world,he would be much better protected.Topic II: Prevention of Attack:Since Harry seems to be a target that Lord Voldemort has his eyes set on, the best possibleway to prevent attack is to use some kind of memory spell, whether it be the Memory Charm or FalseMemory Charm. I do not know a whole lot about magic, but I do know that there has to be some kindof spell that will take away Voldemort’s recollection of why he wants to kill Harry so badly.Sources:"Wikia."
