Ready for next step in ed­u­ca­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A COU­PLE of Monto kids can hardly wait to start univer­sity.

Luke Tit­marsh and Ta­mara Allen re­ceived OPs of 7 and 6 re­spec­tively, and they have en­rolled at CQUniver­sity Rockhampton.

Luke is set to study a dou­ble de­gree of Bach­e­lor of En­gi­neer­ing and Di­ploma of Pro­fes­sional Prac­tice. Ta­mara will study psychology. Luke said he would rent a unit in Rockhampton with his brother.

“I will study ei­ther me­chan­i­cal or med­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing and I am def­i­nitely ex­cited,” he said.

He said his mes­sage to this year’s crop of Year 12 stu­dents was to lis­ten to their teach­ers and not to pro­cras­ti­nate.

Ta­mara will be liv­ing on cam­pus and said she was keen to start her stud­ies.

She said she bought her text books as soon as the of­fer ar­rived. “I am really ex­cited,” she said. “It will be a pleas­ant change from Monto.

“I have the text books, but don’t quite know what work is in­volved just yet.”
