A group of fifteen Strathearn pupils and Dr Haire spent a very productive morning at the courthouse in Dungannon on Thursday this week, practicing for the Citizenship Foundation's mock trial competition which is taking place next month. As well as use of a courtroom for a run-through of our case, the girls were given a tour of the jury selection room and the courthouse's cells. They also briefly watched some court proceedings. Courthouse staff answered the pupils' many questions, who left feeling inspired about the competition as well as their future career prospects in the law and related fields.
