This week, our Mary Mackillop residents had the chance to attend a bus outing to Berrima. While in Berrima, the residents enjoyed a guided tour of the local Court House. The group learnt more about the history of the local area and of the Court House through the viewing of a movie, before commencing with the tour throughout the building.
The final room the residents had the chance to view was the actual Court room, where the group had the opportunity to sit in on a mock court session, with wax figures present to represent the jury, judge, and the defendant (a convict). The court case the residents got to listen to demonstrated how we dealt with legal issues in the past.
After the guided tour, the group headed to Mittagong and enjoyed a lovely picnic lunch at Lake Alexandra. The residents absolutely loved the picturesque and beautiful scene, and had a fantastic day out.
