Last Monday Miss Craig and Mrs Jowett took a group of Year 10 Blackburn High School students to Burnley Crown Court to take part in a court room experience.
This tied in with the crime and punishment scheme of work students are currently following in Religious Studies. They learnt how a court room runs and how a defendant in court is tried.
The students had two very strong teams; the defense, represented by Sami and Abuzar, and the prosecution by Kasim and Amjad.
The Judge was Hashim, who did a fabulous job controlling the court. The rest of the group played the roles of the witnesses and jury.
The closing statements were very persuasive and we came to a verdict of NOT GUILTY.
