Year 12 Student to Sing in France
Northside Christian College congratulates Year 12 student Caitlin Freeman, who has been selected to perform at the Australian Memorial in Villers-Bretonneux, France on Anzac Day. She will be singing with the Voices of Birralee ANZAC Commemoration Choir 2017.
While in France, the choir will also sing with the Australian Army Band in pre-commemorative performances at the Arc de Triomphe and in the French community of Vignacourt.
For Caitlin the trip to the Anzac Memorial has a personal aspect. A distant relative (her great, great, great, great cousin), Private Joseph Hind, died on 3 May 1917 in France at the age of 20. She also has a great, great, great uncle who died at Gallipoli. She will have the opportunity to lay Remembrance Poppies in France.
Caitlin is a wonderful ambassador for her country and her school, and we are proud of her commitment to her singing. We wish her all the best.
