This Semester the Year 6 Academic Extension students participated in The Law Society of WA’s Cluedunnit project. Three teams of students analysed the Brief of Evidence, using deductive reasoning to ask questions which unlocked further, more detailed forensic and physical evidence to help them to identify the guilty suspect. Cluedunnit is a fun but challenging team project requiring critical thinking and creativity.

The three teams’ presentations used different mediums: a stop motion animation, a live action video and a pop up book to explain their investigation and their findings. They were all highly original but the one judged by the students to be the school’s submission was The Fast and The Curious team, whose pop up book has reached the short list of the top ten entries in the State.

The Judging Panel (The President of the Children’s Court of WA, The Chief Magistrate of WA, Professor Robert Cunningham, Curtin Uni Dean of Law, Sergeant Garry Corker, WA Police, Barrister Ms Claire Rossi, Legal Aid WA and Dr Andrew Lu OAM will meet on Fri, 3 to confirm the Winner, Runner up and Ambassador School Award winners on Mon, 6 July.
