Nick Bredhauer (NBCA 2007-2011) and Choir Co-Captain 2011, attended Whitefriars College and was awarded the Father Frank Shortis Award – 2015.
The award goes to a Year 12 student who ‘over his time at the College has consistently embodied, exhibited and promoted the spirit and ethos of the College in his conduct and relationships – both within and beyond the College community’. Nick was actively involved in various community based and fundraising activities, particularly on behalf of Timor Leste and the Manningham community. This included a visit with a group of fellow Students and Teachers to Timor Leste in 2014 representing the Whitefriars community.
Nick’s time in the choir formed a great love of music with him commencing trumpet and piano lessons. He performed in many different ensembles including the Stage Band and a jazz band formed by 5 music students called “About Blue”. He was a member of the orchestra in many College musicals including Oklahoma, Oliver and Barnum to name a few. He continues to play in the Stage Band even though he has left the College.
Nick has been accepted into Monash University to study Law/Arts.
