Defence scholarships for Dungog students

Recipients of Defence Industries Scholarships are year 12 Dungog High School students Michael Easdown, James Hurren and Luke Robertson.Three Dungog High School students have been successful in gaining Defence Industries Scholarships.

Year 12 students James Hurren, Luke Robertson and Michael Easdown have $3000 to spend on their future education.

The students applied for the scholarships by completing a rigorous set of documents that showed their level of understanding of and commitment to a career in the technical-trade support side of the defence forces.

Luke and James were also successful as year 11 students to receive $2000 from the same scholarships.

Michael, 17, and James, 18, are both interested in joining the Army.

Michael is looking at avionics or becoming a helicopter pilot while James is also interested in avionics or general entry officer.

Luke is interested in becoming an electrical technician in the Navy.

“While it shows initiative [in applying for the scholarship] it doesn’t necessarily mean we will be successful in joining the forces,” Michael said.

Principal Maureen Jarvis said receiving the scholarships was an outstanding effort from these students and a credit to the school.

“Achieving this success for three students out of the 2302 who applied is a significant effort,” Ms Jarvis said.

“There were 1449 scholarships awarded to students from 540 schools across Australia.

“Thanks go to Ms Judith Smith who encouraged and supported the students through this exacting process.”
