St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School will have twelve Grade 12 students participating in the mock trial event as well as Mr. Boisvert’s Grade 11 class from St. Charles College. The mock trial competition is an exciting event which is gaining in popularity. This year there will over 100 students from 8 different schools taking part on January 17 and 18.
