Mock Trial Report

Congratulations to the Mock Trial team who won their Round 3 trial against Sydney Boys’ High School last week. Their task was to defend a major shopping centre in a civil case involving negligence. It was a fascinating and demanding trial, but the team won convincingly. Katarina Kuo and Amelia Board (barristers) gave outstanding opening and closing addresses and demonstrated quick thinking in cross examination. Kristina Comino (solicitor) provided excellent support on the basis of her detailed preparation. Phoebe Masnick and Aisha Imtarnasan (witnesses) were steadfast in the face of aggressive cross examination. It was a wonderful team effort and a satisfying reward for all the hard work. Congratulations girls! We look forward to Round 4 against St Vincent’s College.
