Mock Trials is a competition where you take on the role of someone in a court case, for example lawyers or witnesses. It involves the students having to prepare a case and then perform it against two other schools, defending in one and then prosecuting in another. The competition was held on Saturday 6th March and our school competed against Northampton School for Girls and Wootton Upper School, Bedford.
Come the time of the competition, once again our students demonstrated how much nerve and talent they had by performing in front of a crowd of people and arguing our cases with gusto. We didn’t get the verdicts we wanted in both cases but 5 out of the 6 judges voted for us and that was more than good enough to win the competition. This is the third year that Caroline Chisholm School have competed and the third year that we have won the local heat. What an excellent record and it is all down to the hard work and dedication of the students.
We will now go forward as Northampton’s representatives in the Regional finals in May. Congratulations to the students who worked extremely hard and were a credit to their parents and to the school.
Mr McCormack and Miss Lea are immensely proud of the whole team and we look forward to trying to win the Regional finals in six weeks time.
