We went on a field trip, as part of our IB Citizenship unit, to the Judiciary History Center to learn about Hawaii's unique legal history. Students got to participate in a mock trial about a horse that was eating from people's gardens and in the end the judge (Vernon) ruled that Kani the horse's owner, must tie his horse up and pay $5 to each of the garden owners, Nika (Keely) and Lana. That was a lot of money back then! We then walked over to the State Capitol and learned about the symbolism around the Capitol and learned about how bills are passed from Representative Mark Hashem. We went up to the special room where the governor is shown on TV and had a surprise visit from Governor Ige himself! A special thank you to our parent chaperones Kaylee Nam (Matthew) and Gerry Kolbeck (Ruby) for their help watching the students!
