The UNESCO and the Law Faculty Secondary Schools’ Human Rights Competition was held on Friday 20th April (Preliminary round) and Saturday 21st April, 2018 (Semi-Finals and the Finals) at the Law Faculty and the Teaching & Learning Centre, St. Augustine respectively.
Vrishni Maharaj and Nirvana Maharaj represented the school and assumed the role of the State in the Moot Court. They argued that the State did not violate the Human Rights of a visually impaired student who was enrolled in a government braille programme but was expelled and charged for violently injuring a fellow student and threatening to kill a teacher. They were victorious against Hillview College and won a trophy for the school and received a personal cash prize. Vrishni also won the best Mooter of the competition and received a book voucher.
In the art competition, Raeesha Ali earned second place and Ayeesha Jaffrally placed third. They both won cash prizes and personal trophies. Their pieces represented children and their human rights which were displayed throughout the entire day of the Moot Court competition.
Congratulations to all students and teachers involved!
