His Yr 12 Dean had this to say about Harish - "He is trustworthy and reliable with a mature approach to life." These qualities enabled Harish to achieve his Duke of Edinburgh Awards independently, maintain a key role in school bands and as a senior student train the school's Civil Defence Light Rescue Squad.
Griffins Foods Limited were particularly impressed with Harish's achievements and felt that he had the potential to achieve any goal he may set for himself. Harish went on to graduate from Canterbury University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Engineering.
Having now completed his scholarship Harish has become engaged, moved overseas and volunteered his time for a project which involved feeding orphans in East Africa.
He graduated from Monash University in 2014 with a Masters of Maintenance and Reliability Engineering.
Harish now works as a Reliability Engineer for Moly-Cop in Australia.
