Stu­dents cel­e­brate

Canning Times - - OPINION -

THREE Can­ning stu­dents were hon­oured for top marks in high schools ex­ams at a mul­ti­cul­tural ex­trav­a­ganza at Perth Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre re­cently.

The Willetton-based In­dian So­ci­ety of WA (ISWA), in col­lab­o­ra­tion with other In­dian as­so­ci­a­tions, hon­oured stu­dents of In­dian ori­gin for their WA Cer­tifi­cate of Ed­u­ca­tion (WACE) ex­cel­lence at its flag­ship an­nual event Sangam, the Spirit of In­dia.

River­ton res­i­dent Aarushi Ras­togi achieved an ATAR of 99.6, Harsh Sharma, also of River­ton, scored 99.35 and Tan­may Nigam, of Can­ning Vale, scored 99.25. All teenagers are now study­ing medicine. Miss Ras­togi (18) said to get into medicine she knew she needed high marks and mon­i­tored her re­sults through the year.

The for­mer Ross­moyne Se­nior High School stu­dent is now study­ing medicine at UWA.

When she isn’t study­ing she en­joys Bol­ly­wood danc­ing.

In ad­di­tion to recog­ni­tion of the com­mu­nity’s top stu­dents, the event show­cased In­dia’s cul­tural diver­sity and gave lo­cal artists an op­por­tu­nity to per­form on stage.

ISWA pres­i­dent Ram Bansal said the event was sold out and hoped it would as­sist in a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of In­dian cul­ture in the com­mu­nity.

Aarushi Ras­togi (18) is study­ing medicine.
