Two Year 12 students from St Luke’s College have been awarded certificates of excellence by Australia’s peak professional body for engineers in recognition of their outstanding results in science and maths.

Engineers Australia awarded Varun Jahagirdar and Priyanshu Malik with Certificates of Excellence for Science and Mathematics last month for achieving scores higher than 75 per cent in the subjects of chemistry, physics, maths specialist and maths method — all fields considered important for success in engineering — and based on their school’s recommendation.

St Luke’s College principal Michael Williams said the school was proud of the boys and their achievements.

“Varun and Priyanshu are both exceptionally hard working students who thoroughly deserve to be recognised for the dedication and commitment they have shown to their education,” he said.

“We look forward to seeing where the future takes both these fine young men.”

The awards are not the only academic honours Varun and Priyanshu have received this year, having also won the school’s dux and proxime awards respectively.

Mr Williams said their results so far this year put them on track to achieving ATARs in the high 90s.
