The results are in: Annual HSD Pipes and Drums Competition
31st March 2022
Competition (and the sound of pipes!) was in the air at the School’s annual Solo Piping and Drumming Competition – the first held in-person since the pandemic!
Pupils from the Junior Years and the Senior Years took part, impressing a panel of top judges – and the HSD Pipe Band instructors - with their performances across a number of categories.
Pipe Major and instructor David Wilton said, “All the pupils were a credit to themselves and really put in a lot of effort to play as well as they could.
“The talent on display was very encouraging to see, keeping the pupils focused as we head towards the 1st Pipe Band competition season in 2 years.”
The judging panel included our very own janitor Dave Sinclair, who is not only a World Champion piper, but also a Champion of Champion’s Championship winning Piper – an incredible title to hold!
Also adjudicating were Tom and Paul Brown who are principals of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association’s Pipe Band College and renowned RSPBA adjudicators.
The competition was kindly sponsored by McCallum bagpipes, and the Junior Years contestants enjoyed an award ceremony at which prizes provided by the company were presented to the winners.
David Wilton added, “McCallum’s have been wonderful in their support for our school and piping in general. Many thanks to them for their continued support.”
