This term the Year 11 Legal Studies students are working on a unit on court process and punishment of offenders. As part of our work, students completed a mock trial, taking various roles, from judge, to counsel, even the accused. A few members also made up the jury, making a decision about guilt or innocence.
What made this mock trial a little bit different than a normal classroom mock trial, is that two of the students involved join us online from Hong Kong. It was great to hear Hayden and Forest participate taking their roles in the case.
This might be the first time the real (and historic) case of the Kenniff brothers has ever been heard internationally. These bushrangers committed their crimes in Roma so some of the boys in the class did recognise names of the area.
We look forward to expanding the students experience of the court process with an excursion to the local magistrates court later in the year.
