Piping prizes

The Foundation’s annual awards program for achievements in bagpiping has seen it present piping prizes to students at Scotch College, Haileybury College, Ballarat Grammar and Presbyterian Ladies College.

Testament to the standard of piping in Australian secondary schools is the performance of the Scotch College Pipe and Drums in 2015 who competed at the World Pipe Championships in Glasgow, and finished equal third (fourth on count back). In doing so the bands drummers achieved fifth place and pipers were judged best Under 18 pipe corps in the world.
