We had a wonderful performance from fourteen members of the Police Pipe Band today, they enthralled staff and students with the music of the bagpipes, bass drum and the snare drum. There was a drummer called Sticks that played the snare like you have never heard before. The bagpipes filled the hall with traditional tunes and even had the staff up dancing!
Did you know the traditional reason pipe band members wear brogue shoes with laces up their socks? Because, when they stepped in mud and got stuck and tried to pull their shoes out, the shoes would stay on! The holes in the brogue shoes allow the water to seep out. It’s pretty wet in Scotland! These are some of the questions children asked the band members. They learnt about the fascinating traditions of the drums and pipes of Scotland.
Thank you so much to the Police Pipe Band.
Thank you for the fantastic support we received from parents and the school community last year during the Woolworths Earn and Learn promotion. We have received some amazing resources! The Large wooden Block set was a huge hit with our Year 1 students and they will be shared around to the rest of the school including our Kindy and Pre-Primary areas.
