the peace project went to rouen, france!
The OZY Youth Choir Honouring Defence Service was in Rouen on 19 December, 2018 for a very special Peace Project!
The last event for the Centenary of Anzac, was a very special Peace Project which saw the Ozy Youth Choir Honouring Defence Service take a group of young people aged 13-22 years to France and Belgium to Stand for peace, stand for veterans and their families, sing to remember as we rethink remembrance on the major Australian Battlefields of the Western Front. The tour also provided opportunities to stand and sing with other young people from France. On 19 December, 2018 we were in Rouen as we joined with our Peace Project Partner school, College Sainte Marie Déville-lès-Rouen.
We were also joined by the National and NSW State President's of the War Widows Guild of Australia and students and teachers from one of our Partner Schools, Bowral High.
What is the peace project?
The Peace Project is an opportunity to engage as many young people and their families for the end of the Centenary of Anzac in November, to -
- Stand together for Peace
- Stand together for Veterans and their families
- Sing to Remember
- Rethink Remembrance
