In June the two 6th classes went on a tour to the Central Criminal Courts. We had to go through a metal detector and lots of security before we got inside. The building was enormous with glass elevators and hundreds of rooms.
We participated in a mock trial. Some of us even got to wear barristers’ robes. We acted out a court case and pretended to be judges, the jury members, the barristers, solicitors and witnesses. We saw lots of Gardaí, barristers and judges walking around the building.
After the courts, we went to a playground in the Phoenix Park. Then we visited Collins’s Barracks and saw a 1916 museum.
It was such a fun tour and now lots of us know what we’d like to be when we grow up!
