Year 5 and 6 students work together and compete in the The Law Society of WA’s competition – Cluedunnit.
Students work in teams of 7, investigating a fictional criminal offence with the goal of identifying the offender. They are given a brief at the commencement of the competition that includes a police statement of facts, witness statements and forensic evidence and students are encouraged to ask the Law Society staff questions about the incident to get more clues and information in order to correctly identify the suspect. Each team prepares and submits its findings in a written or electronic medium.
Students learn to develop research, analytical and creative, teamwork, and argumentative skills, and compete against other student teams from schools across Western Australia.
Students have been invited to apply for a place in the Cluedunnit Club. Cluedunnit Club meets once a week after school and has run part way through Term 1 and Term 2.
