Speaking with Confidence

02/12/12

In 2012, Yulia Cai changed our school history when she became the first International student at our school to participate in the year 12 finals of the Carson Trophy competition. Yulia spoke passionately and persuasively to position us to agree that international students should be supported and not discriminated against, since they can offer so much to both the economy of Australia and enrich the multiculturalism of Australia. We hope that this will encourage other international students to speak about other issues that are close to their hearts.
