On Friday Eagles (and a selection of Goshawks) attended court at Ebley house to compete in a mock trial competition. Gastrells entered 3 teams, 2 playing the role of the prosecution and 1 playing the role of the defence. This was such a fantastic experience for the children who had the chance to be magistrates, solicitors, witnesses, ushers, court clerks, court artists and many other roles for the morning.
Friday’s competition was a culmination of 3 week’s of hard work, all the children have worked great in their respective teams demonstrating exceptional speaking and listening skills and confidence. As well as this they now have a great appreciation for how a magistrate court runs and a greater appreciation for the effects of online bullying.
