Magistrate Visit 11/02/20
Today two magistrates came to visit. We leart about what a magistrate is and what they do. We found out that anyone can be a magistrate unless they are already involved with the law, eg: a police officer or prison worker.
We role played a mock trial based on cyber bullying where a girl was sending unkind texts to someone. Then we discussed in groups of three (like magistrates would in court) to decide if we thought the girl was guilty or not guilty.
We then discussed different types of punishments the magistrates can give.
