St Margaret's Crackers Court

At six o'clock on Wednesday 1st of May 2024 something big was going down in the hall. The 7 Junior’s St Meg’s Case Crackers Court (SMCCC for short) was taking place. There were two teams, the pursuers and defenders. Both teams had been preparing for ten weeks straight. Everyone in 7 Junior had a role to play in bringing the court to life. We were so lucky to have one of our former pupils Miss Emma Peterson, a Procurator Fiscal, join us on the night and to be our sheriff. Not only this, but we were also presenting our hard work on an Aerospace competition which we recently WON!

The night started off with an introduction to the event and the case. Parents were able to wander around the room and look at the exciting displays that we had put together. Then the court was open and we heard the fabulous opening statements, expertly presented by the solicitors, who wore gowns made by our gown makers. After this, the witnesses were questioned. First up were the pursuers, then the defence. After this, everyone heard the closing statements and then the moment we had all been waiting for, the judge made a decision. It was very tricky and overall both teams benefited from the decision, but compromises had to be made.

Thank you so much to our class teacher Mrs O’Neill and our parents for helping and supporting us.
