Grant funding: $350.00
Two youth choristers from the Moreton Bay Region recently
performed at the Anzac Day Commemorative Services on the Western
Front in April 2016, with some financial assistance from the
Individual Achievement Grant, an initiative under council's
Community Grants Program.
Matthew Anderson and Gerard Cosh (both pictured) are part of the
Voices of Birralee Choir, which was selected by the Australian
Government to perform at Villers-Bretonneux in France on Anzac Day.
Gerard said the opportunity to perform in France on Anzac Day meant
a lot to him, and Matthew was looking forward to reflecting upon
his own family's history during the trip.
Both choristers received $350.00 each under the Youth
Achievement category of the Individual Achievement Grant; a council
initiative which aims to encourage and celebrate individuals who
have achieved outstanding results in their chosen field.

competition from the strong New Zealand side.
Rachael was supported under the Youth Achievement category of
the Individual Achievement Grant. She was awarded $350.00 to offset
travel and event related expenses.
