PLC Sydney excels at the World Individual Debating & Public Speaking Competition

fab-four-orators-2017Breaking News - Jade Lin makes the Grand Finals in Debating at the World Individual Debating & Public Speaking Competition (WIDPSC). This is a PLC Sydney first!

The Grand Finals will be held at Ravenswood Auditorium (Henry Street, Gordon), kicking off with Debating from 1.30 pm today. For anyone interested in attending, we invite all PLC Sydney parents and staff to join the Australian cheer squad. 

PLC Sydney's Fab Four Orators (Kelsey, Jade, Eleanor and Lina) have done us proud. Over the past few days all four have performed incredibly well, representing Australia in EVERY final event. This means they represented the top 20% of students in the Worlds competition. Eleanor was the only Australian in three finals (reading, debating and impromptu); Jade in debating; Kelsey in reading and after dinner speaking and Lina in impromptu and persuasive speaking. 

Well done girls and keep that Australian flag flying high for Jade today.
