A list of the winners of the first ever Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships has been posted to The College of Piping’s website.
The list consists of the winners and two runners up of each of the five categories from the Juvenile category up to the Quartet Piping category.
The College of Piping has praised the Chairman and his steering committee for the success of this event and they mentioned the plans for a similar event next year following the overwhelming numbers of bands and students who attended the event.
David Johnston, Chairman of the committee behind the competition, which has the motto Every school needs a pipe band, said: “It was just fantastic to see so much talent from all across Scotland under one roof. The students displayed some impressive skills and technique which made it extremely difficult for the judges to pick the winners.”
“It was just brilliant to see so many keen youngsters showing their passion for the Scottish tradition of bag piping which will hopefully inspire other schools and students to get involved next year and keep the heritage growing.”
The full coverage as well as the list of winners and runners up can be read on The College of Piping’s website and was secured on behalf of Scottish School’s Pipe Bands Championships thanks to Holyrood Partnership.
