Girls Compete to be Magistrates
Friday, 13 July 2012
Two teams of Hesketh House girls participated in the Young Magistrates of the Year Competition at Canon Slade School, to commemorate the 650th anniversary of the Magistrates.
Namitha Aravind, Seren Davies and Melissa Cartwright made up one team and Georgina Crowther, Antonia Jameson and Emily Pike completed the second. Both teams were runners up in the competition scoring totals of 33 and 34 out of 36 respectively. The girls competed against seven other schools and sat as 'benches of magistrates', to answer all manner of questions about how magistrates work in the community and aspects of court practice and the law.
