Luke Edwardes (’13 Plumbing)
Luke Edwardes graduated as part of the St Patrick’s Technical College Class of 2013 as a member of the Plumbing course. During Year 11 he was selected to attend a Defence Experience Tour after being granted a Defence Technical Scholarship, one of a record ten recipients from St Patrick’s that year.
Luke attended his final Defence Recruiting interview last month and was successful in gaining a recommendation to enlist as an Armament Technician.
Luke’s family attribute his two years at St Patrick’s as instrumental in him being successful.
Luke is one of a number of St Patrick’s Technical College graduates, who over the past eight years, have moved on to successfully gain entry to trades programs with the Australian Defence Forces. The Industry Office can assist any student interested in pursuing a trade career in the Army, Navy or Air Force.
