Participants of the ‘Public Speeches and
Debates Technique’ training course held a mock trial at the Kutaisi Court of
Appeals. The pupils became familiar with the setup at court and imitated the
roles of a defendant and a prosecutor.
Ana Javakhadze, pupil at Kutaisi Public
School №12, was chosen by her peers as the best participant in the mock trial
based on the following three qualities: arguing conclusively, critical thinking
and working fact-oriented.
At the end of the trial, all 24 participants
from different public schools of Kutaisi were awarded certificates. The 4-month
training course on public speeches and debate techniques was implemented within
the educational programs of the Education Development and Employment Center
