French Naval Pipe Visit

On 24 May, Scotch was privileged to host the French Navy pipe band or "Bagad of Lann Bihoue", who played from 12.30pm until 1.15pm on the top oval. In the audience were the Perth French Consul, the Directrice of the Alliance Française and the Headmaster along with parents and students from Year 4 to Year 12 and a journalist from the Post. Before joining the French Helicopter-Carrier moored at Garden Island, the pipers played an upbeat set - on pipes slightly different to those used by the Scotch pipe band. The finale put the two bands together for a beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace. Afterwards, over refreshments, our students were able to have a question and answer session with the naval pipers. Many thanks to Roy Hamilton for setting up the opportunity for Scotch.
