Congratulations to everyone in Eagles class who have recorded our best ever results in this years mock trial, with Gastrells A team finishing in 3rd and Gastrells B team just 0.5 of a point away in 4th out of 22 teams. To have both teams do so well is a great achievement and all of the children should be incredibly proud of themselves.
In addition to this Gastrells has won the court artist prize for a second year running with Neil Carmichael selecting Ellie’s picture of the court room and magistrates as the best in the entire competition.
On top of these 3 fantastic results, Isla & Henry were both shortlisted for the outstanding pupil award with Isla, who played the role of a magistrate being chosen as the overall winner, this is a truly incredible achievement to be selected out of over 250 children who entered this years mock trial.
On Thursday two of the magistrates who are responsible for organising the annual mock trial event came into school to present the shields and prizes to the children (pictures below), all of the staff involved are immensely proud of all the children, well done.
