Are you a piper? Do you have three friends at Broughton who pipe too? Then make a quartet and represent your school at the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships on March 13th!
The event is being held at Broughton, and as host school we really ought to field a competitive quartet of our own!
It’s a big event, too. Last year over a hundred schools from Scotland and England came, and competed in a host of categories. There’s even a new category, the freestyle section, where your pipes play alongside other mixed instruments! Watch freestyle expert and ex-BHS/EMS pupil Martyn Bennett wow ‘em in Glasgow:
Please give it some thought. Need funds to get started? There may be a bit of grant money to help. And when you’ve dusted off your brave pipes, get in touch with us at the Parent Council (email@example.com)!
Yours, aye …
