On Saturday he won the 14 & Under Graeme Johnston Memorial Competition in Glasgow and collected a brand new set of McCallum bagpipes for his efforts. Cameron Stewart (S3) finished second, whilst Euan Kerr (S5) gained a creditable 6th place in the 18 & Under competition. On Sunday Calum took second prize in the prestigious Scots Guards’ Solo Piping Competition held in Redford Barracks.

Keeping Watson's in the news was Jonathon Simpson (Class of 2007) when he appeared live on the BBC playing Highland Cathedral on the Murrayfield Stadium roof to welcome the Scottish Rugby team on to the pitch on what proved to be a nail biting historic win against Australia.
