Congratulations to our Year 10 Mock Mediation team on winning the Law Society of New South Wales Mock Mediation Competition for 2016. The girls took home a medal each, a trophy and $1000 prize money. Christina was also awarded the Student Prize for the day and received a cheque for $250 from the competition’s sponsor, the University of Sydney.
It is a points-based competition where students gain points for how well they work as a team and how convincing their ‘characters’ are. There is a lot of role playing, arguing and emotion throughout the 90 minute mediation, with even a few ‘fake’ storm-outs and some crocodile tears (aka Kate). The girls have worked hard all year and represented the College with pride, defeating St John Paul College from Coffs Harbour in the Grand Final on 4 November.
I would like to congratulate the Runners Up, as well as all of the girls who have been part of our team this year. They are Christina, Anita, Kayla, Kate, Caitlin, Natalie, Maddy, Gemma, Yazmin, Natasha and Lois. I would like to extend an invitation for any girl in Year 9 this year, who would like to join our team next year.
