Our CAE and FCE students got to experience first-hand what goes on in the court house. They even got to act out a real trial and dress up in court room attire. This was a great day out with every one practicing a lot of English throughout the day. Some fantastic photos too!
Here is a little information about ANZAC DAY.
ANZAC Day – 25 April – is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
Why is ANZAC DAY so Special?
When war broke out in 1914, Australia had been a federal commonwealth for only 13 years. The new national government was eager to establish its reputation among the nations of the world. In 1915 Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of the allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in order to open the Dardanelles to the allied navies. The ultimate objective was to capture Constantinople (now Istanbul in Turkey), the capital of the Ottoman Empire, an ally of Germany.

What a beautiful Monday it turned out to be! Perfect weather for a great game of Tennis! Good game had by all.
As part of everyday school there should be time for fun! These students have been discussing the legal system, the lexis of law, and debating, which is very good for practicing speaking English.
These students headed down to the law courts to see the “law in action”.
“This was great fun, we got to watch a real trial, look around the high court and the supreme court and enact out an old trial, a bonus of dressing up for the occasion to make it all surreal! A really interesting and fun educational day!”
