On Monday 26th September, The President of the Debating Association of Victoria, Dr Jonathan Benney, presented three Swannie Awards to Beth Rivkah Ladies College students.

Swannies are awarded to the speaker in each region and grade who has the highest average speaker score in the competition.

The recipients were Year 10 student, Tzivia Greenbaum ( C Grade), and Year 9 students: Aviva Basserabie and Hannah Treisman (D Grade).

“It is a remarkable achievement for Beth Rivkah to attain 50% of all Swannie Awards for Victoria this year,” said their coach, Ruth Rosenberg.

Beth Rivkah’s C Grade team will debate against Gippsland Grammar School in the quarter finals next month placing them in the top 8 of 800 schools in Victoria so far.
