Speech winner heads to Tamworth
St Peters College student Veronica MacKenzie will be spending the next two weeks visiting Gore’s sister city Tamworth.
The Gore district youth councillor is in the New South Wales town after winning last year’s Gore sister city committee secondary schools speech competition.
Before flying out at the weekend, Veronica said she was really looking forward to the trip even though she has a hectic schedule.
“It should be an amazing trip.”
She spends the first week attending Oxley High School and will visit nearby Armidale University. Her second week includes visiting specific areas of interest in and around Tamworth, including a horse stud and wildlife park.
Veronica will be hosted this week by a teacher from Oxley High School then stay with Tamworth’s Country Music Queen, Dimity Chaseling, during the second week.
The 2012 sister city committee speech competition will be held on 2 August.
