Isabel Osborne excelled at public speaking and debating competitions in Sydney recently.December 18, 2012 4:16am
Deniliquin North Public School Year 6 student Isabel Osborne (pictured) represented the Riverina at public speaking and debating competitions in Sydney this month.
In the state debating contest, in early December, Isabel’s team won two out of their five debates.
Isabel said both victories were against previously undefeated Sydney teams.
She also said many of the debate topics were on ‘‘bans’’, such as bans on modelling for children under eight years old and bans on junk food advertising.
Isabel performed so well in the debating contests that a teacher who attended the competition emailed North School, praising her enthusiasm and commitment.
In the public speaking competition, held in late November, it is believed Isabel was the third best competitor, however only a winner was announced.
It has been a big year for Isabel, who was also named Dux of North School this week.
Isabel’s North School debating team was also runner-up at the Riverina competition.
