And wizarding schools are not necessarily the same as muggle ones, although they'd probably be similar. Having been to school in Australia and in Britain, at a similar sort of school in each country, my school in Australia was much more like Hogwarts is described than my school in Britain - it had houses and house points and we had to buy our own textbooks and all the school rules were actually obeyed (at school in Britain we were supposed to stand up every time a teacher walked into the room. I think it lasted two days.) I expect that in many ways a wizarding school in Australia would be very similar to Hogwarts.Originally Posted by Inverarity
I also think they would have a prison - you don't need Voldemort to have some people who commit crimes! Although they might be a bit more sensible and not use Dementors, remember Azkaban was around long before Voldemort (Dumbledore's father was sent there).
