Tintern Grammar has been fortunate to enrol such talented students in the DAV 2016 Debating season hosted by Tintern Grammar. The Swannie Awards are named after Alan Swanwick, a long time member of the DAV and a pioneer of debating in Victoria.”Swannies” are awarded to the speaker in each region and grade who has the highest average speaker score after competing at least three debates during the year.
Their achievement is particularly impressive as both students have only just begun the careers in DAV debating. Kavya and Rose will be presented at the 2016 “Swannie” Award Ceremony on Monday 17th October at MLC.
