The winning band at the Scottish Schools' Pipe Band Championships 2016It's been a fantastic start to the season, as the Juvenile band made it three wins from three at the indoor competitions; our own GWC invitational competition on 6 March, the Glasgow Highland Club on 11 March and the Scottish Schools' Pipe Band Championships on 13 March. The band is hitting great form with the outdoor competitions on the way!

Congratulations are also due to the Novice Juvenile band who gained a third place and the Junior band, a first and second in their respective grades at the Scottish Schools' Pipe Band Championships.    

GWC Pipes & Drums were well represented with numerous awards’ in the solo piping & drumming competitions. This was topped by Louis Bendle (S6) taking first place in the Senior drumming at both the GWC Invitational and the Glasgow Highland Club competitions. In the Junior drumming category, James Strachan (S3) took first place at the GWC Invitational competition and Guy Kellas (S1) secured the first place at the Glasgow Highland Club.

All in all, a great start to the 2016 competition season with the Lothian & Borders indoor contest next on the agenda in April before beginning the outdoor campaign in May.
