This year, ICOM Secondary Students won two incredible awards in the category of debating and public speaking.
Ali Ali of Year 12 won the top A grade debater, and Nosayba Aljibaly won the top D grade debater for our region under the guidance of ICOM Debating Coordinator Mr Carrington.
This is a great honour for our students and the college, and we are incredibly proud of their efforts.
Ali and Nosayba will receive the prestigious Swannie Award, which is awarded to the speaker in each region and grade who has the highest average speaker score after completing at least three debates during the year.
The Swannie Awards are named after Alan Swanwick, a long-time member of the Debater’s Association of Victoria and a pioneer of debating in Victoria.
