Mock Trial

Congratulations to our Mock Trial team. Not only did they win their second  round against Turramurra High; this week the team also competed against Hornsby Girls High and … they won! What an achievement. The rounds are now complete and we await the tallied results later this month to confirm the top eight teams who will compete in the finals series. Congratulations to the members of the team who represented Loreto Normanhurst in this round:

  • Olivia Alexander (Year 10)
  • Brigid Quirk (Year 10)
  • Jessica Webster (Year 10)
  • Thea Whittaker (Year 11)
  • Scarlett Butterfield (Year 10)
  • Lucy Findlay (Year 11)


Congratulations to our Archdale and CSDA Debating  teams who this past week have finished the 2020 rounds. It has been an incredible opportunity to be able to continue debating on a virtual platform. There have been plenty of technical challenges and plenty of great moments along the way. We have celebrated wins and losses and I am incredibly proud of the adaptability of our students. Congratulations, ladies!

Both competitions now move into a finals series. We congratulate the following teams on making it through to the quarter finals:

CSDA Archdale
10A Junior
SN2 8B

We wish the teams the best of luck.
