Among them were school Dux Lauren Rheeston-Stewart, Modern History Certificate of Distinction winner Victoria Meadows and English Certificate of Distinction winner Rebecca Ganon.

Lauren also won the Perth College Chemistry Prize, Mathematics Specialist Prize, Mathematics 3CD Prize, Physics Prize and Engineers Australia Award.

She has received multiple offers nationally and internationally but her two favourites are the universities of Bath or Southampton.

Lauren is planning to study a degree in Mechatronics, which combines mechanical, electrical and computer engineering.

The degree would provide a pathway into Formula One.

“I’m a big fan of Formula One,” Lauren said.

“I could be designing car systems or improving systems.”

Rebecca said she learned the hard way how important it was to balance study and social life during exams.

“I studied too much in Year 11 and burnt out,” Rebecca said.

However, Rebecca said by Year 12 she was going out more with friends and socialising.

“My results were the biggest surprise – I wasn’t expecting the results I got,” she said.

Rebecca will study a bachelor of law and politics, philosophy and economics.

She plans to use the law degree to enter federal politics in the education sector.
