Inspired to Excel, Serve, Lead
Nishanth’s choice of VCE subjects included French, Latin and Chinese, reflecting his passion for international affairs. After graduating from Grammar as Ballarat’s highest achieving VCE student in 2014 with an ATAR of 99.9 and a perfect 50/50 Study Score in English Language , Nishanth ventured to China to extend his Chinese language studies. From China he travelled to The Hague to represent Australia at the International Model United Nations Conference, a five-day simulation of the United Nations where young adults seek solutions to the various problems of the world through discussion, negotiation and debate.
Nishanth was awarded a prestigious Tuckwell Scholarship in 2014 to commence studies in Mathematics and Economics at the Australian National University from 2015. One of Australia’s most significant awards, the Tuckwell Scholarship recognises the nation’s brightest students who show a breadth of personal excellence that extends into areas beyond their outstanding academic prowess, including commitment to broader community service.
The exciting future ahead of Nishanth reflects the way in which all Grammar students develop individual capacity across a breadth of academic studies and in their larger view of community – locally, regionally and internationally.
