Chris targets army after school

FOURTEEN-year-old Chris Hanchard has already figured out what he wants to do when he finishes school.

Chris is in Year 9 at St Andrew’s Christian School, and said he loved the atmosphere at the school.

“It’s really good because it is so small – everyone knows everyone really,” Chris said.

After completing his Higher School Certificate, Chris aims to join the Australian Army.

“I’m aiming to be a marksman or military policeman, depending on how I go,” he said.

When asked about his hobbies, Chris was sure of the two things he loved most in Grafton – The Saraton Theatre and Army Cadets.

“It’s good because I get to meet heaps of new people – being at a small school kind of limits that,” he said.

Chris also plays soccer for the under-16 Coutts Cougars, and said he was pleased to be playing in a higher age group with tougher competition. .
