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.
