Mock Trial

Congratulations to the Mock Trial team who enjoyed a convincing win in their Round 4 trial against St Vincent’s College.

This was a highly entertaining criminal trial regarding the wilful destruction of property. It was truly a team effort with all participants contributing excellent performances. The case was thoroughly prepared by our solicitor Pip Wolstenholme, with outstanding addresses and questioning by the barristers Amelia Board and Sarah McNaughton. Our witnesses, Aisha Imtarnasan and Ella Godhard, remained steadfast under intense questioning during cross examination. The trial ran smoothly under the watchful eye of court officer Lily Helene. As always, there were plenty of lessons learned with sound advice provided by the magistrate. No doubt the team will continue to improve as they progress into the first elimination round next term.

Congratulations girls and we look forward to the next trial against Sydney Grammar!
