Braemar College congratulates and acknowledges all recipients of the Macedon Ranges Youth Awards 2015.
We are very proud to have both current students and Old Collegians amongst the award winners.
These students were acknowledged for their contribution to the local community.
The Youth Awards acknowledge the achievements and success of young people in the Macedon Ranges, promoting and encouraging their diverse interests, hobbies, and skills. Hundreds of young people have been presented with awards since 2006, with annual award nights celebrating contributions across a number of categories.
The 2015 Youth Awards were presented at Kyneton Town Hall on Tuesday 25 August.
Clearly, Braemar College’s wellbeing philosophy which strives to foster a sense of community leaves a lasting legacy in the lives of our students well beyond their years at Braemar College.

Music – Group Mosey
Bridie Johnstone (OC 2014) with Isaac Trickey and Jimmy O’Hare
Macedon Ranges is rich in musical talent. This particular group is no exception. Mosey have been playing as a three piece for over a year now. All three musicians have come from very different musical backgrounds but together they have created some amazing pieces of music. They compile original songs that have engaged every crowd that they have performed for. They were the winners of the Macedon Ranges FReeZA Battle of the Bands. We wish them well for the Regional Finals on 27 September at Kyneton Town Hall

COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION AWARDS
Environmental Awareness Josh Murray
Josh Murray (current student Year 9) is a young man dedicated and passionate about the ethical and sustainable farming of laying hens.
He is supported by his parents and inspired by their aspiration to live self-sufficiently and participate in community shared agriculture. From the moment they moved to the Macedon Ranges chickens and eggs have been part of this young man’s daily routine. Chicken welfare comes first for this young man, followed closely by the regeneration that truly free range happy chickens promote across the land they occupy.
