‘‘In both years the team was runner-up in the Riverina final after debating several schools across the district.

‘‘She was one of four Year 6 students who were selected and travelled to Sydney for a four day State Debating Final in December 2012.
‘‘Isabel also competed in the NSW Multicultural Perspectives Public Speaking Competition where she was required to deliver a four minute speech from a list of topics provided by the NSW Arts Unit. Entrants were given five minutes preparation time to deliver an impromptu speech on a topic provided by the adjudicators.

‘‘She won the regional competition at Corowa and went on to win the Riverina Final at Albury. Isabel then represented Western NSW and the Riverina at the state final in Sydney.
