Field of Dreams for Luke

Article excerpt

HSC students from St John's College Woodlawn have been offered a host of early entry places at various universities across the country in disciplines as diverse as government and international relations, biomedical science, agribusiness and nursing.

One proud recipient of an early entry offer from the University of New England, Luke Field, says he loved studying at St John's and is looking forward to the equally rural setting of the university in Armidale.

"St John's College was an absolutely fantastic school. I loved everything about it - the rural area where it's positioned was fantastic and being in a country location it adds to the feel. And seeing as it's got such a long history, it was an honour to be accepted," he said.

"The teachers and the courses and the resources that are offered there are probably one of the best in the state, if not the whole country, because we have a lot of opportunities.

"The most challenging aspect was probably the stairs."

Luke will go on to study a Bachelor of Media and Communications.

"I'd love to eventually work on either a movie set as a camera operator or as an assistant director. I managed to do photography and digital media as an elective in year 11 and 12. I love taking photos as a hobby and editing them in Photoshop," Luke added.

Particularly notable achievements in Luke's circle of friends included the nomination of James Palmer's HSC work to be performed at the Opera House.

"He didn't get offered but got nominated," said Luke.

As far as advice for students going through their HSC next year Luke said:

"To the younger students in the class of 2016 I'd say don't get too stressed out about it, it is only a mark at the end of the day, study hard, work with your timetables and don't over-do it, there's nothing worse than getting burnt out just before the HSC."
