PLC Sydney's best ever debating results

jade-lin-4th-in-worldCongratulations to Jade Lin (Year 12) for a outstanding effort over the past few weeks. Jade is truly a standout performer on both the local and international stage, attending and competing in the Youth Parliament; The Lions 'Youth of the Year' Awards; State, National and World Schools Public Speaking and Debating Championships, that culminated an international ranking - 4th in the World in Individual Debating .....simply amazing and best individual debating result that PLC Sydney has ever received.

It is also lovely to hear comments made by others about how impressed they were by Jade's attention to detail and thoughtfulness, for example, the way Jade waited at the bottom of the stage to escort the Lions District Governor off stage after he had introduced her. She is focused and highly successful young lady, but also a deserving and appreciative participant.


Congratulations Jade, you are an outstanding PLC Sydney representative in every respect. 

We would also like to acknowledge Ms Lynette Hawkey, Head of Speech and Public Speaking (External), MUN Director at PLC Sydney, for her wonderful contribution. Her teaching skill, professionalism and dedication to the students is indeed a great credit to both herself and the College.
