Pipe Band Parent Support Group (PBPSG)

Easter Competitions

Congratulations to the Scotch College Pipe Band for their success over the Easter weekend. It certainly was a busy time for all involved.

On Saturday, all of the 8 bands competing in the All Schools Pipe Band Competition, as part of PLCs Centenary celebrations, marched through Perth City completing with a performance on the Forrest Place Stage.

All bands were very well received, especially by tourists and unsuspecting shoppers who were literally stopped in their tracks. The upstairs balcony above Forrest Place was packed with spectators.

On Sunday at the All Schools Pipe Band Competition, Scotch won overall, PLC (Perth) were second and Trinity College came third. Others schools were represented from Singapore, Malaysia, Sydney and Albany.

On Monday, Scotch were awarded State Champions in the Juvenile Division at the State Pipe Band Competition. They also presented a Pipe Band Display.

On both days of competitions, Marshall Barrymore won the Drum Major Flourish.

The PBPSG committee would like to thank all parents who committed their time volunteering over the weekend, offering goods to sell and to those who provided so many plates of home baked goods.

Finally thank you to the Scotch community who came to support the Pipe Band, it is much appreciated.
