Parkview Public School has extended its remarkable achievements in the Premier's Debating Challenge, reaching the final stage of the Riverina competition for the second successive year.
Parkview Public School A, consisting of Kayla Mecham, Samantha Pianca, Jake Balaz and Jade Paynter have qualified for the Riverina finals of the Premier's Debating Challenge after successfully arguing the negative for 'The Internet is making libraries irrelevant' in their quarter final match up against Lake Cargelligo Central School at Ardlethan today.
The team, which enjoyed victories in earlier rounds over Leeton Public School, Barellan Central School and Parkview Public School B, will meet the three other finalists, Beckom Public School, Young Public School and Griffith North Public School in the Riverina playoffs to be conducted on Wednesday, 13th October.
PPS debating coordinator Mrs Julie McAliece commended both the Parkview and Lake Cargelligo students on a high standard debate and was particularly proud of her team that has now won 5 debates in a row including their success at the Leeton Eisteddfod in August.
