Woodleigh Swannie Winners

The Woodleigh debating teams have had a really successful year in 2022 with many wins and best speaker awards throughout the competition season.

As well as the Senior Team (Alex Mathews, Bridget Richards, and Tealia Holmes) making it to the Quarter Finals (meaning they were undefeated in every competition), the year was capped off by two of our students being awarded Swannies.

The Swannies are awarded to the best speakers in a single grade from around Melbourne. So, a massive congratulations to Bridget Richards and Lillian Carter who both received 2022 Swannie Awards for the Mount Eliza region; Bridget for the A Grade (Year 12) competition and Lillian for the D Grade (Year 9). The awards were presented at a public ceremony at Methodist Ladies College earlier in Term 4.
