Congratulations to our StAC Pipers who competed at the annual Labour Weekend Silver Chanter Competition here at St Andrew’s. Our pipers won some excellent prizes. Congratulations to all of the students who competed, especially to the following for their first place wins:

Benjamin Murray – Winner Under 21 Strathspey and Reel
Louis Newman – Winner D Grade Piobaireachd
Louis Newman – Winner D Grade Strathspey and Reel
Robert Thomson – Winner D Grade 6/8 March
Robert Thomson – Winner D Grade 2/4 March
Samuel Williams – Winner Novice 2/4 March

It wasn't just our pipers that impressed, but so did our drummers who competed at the South Island Solo Drumming Championships. Not only did a number of StAC students secure top three placings, all of the winners were St Andrew's students, an impressive feat across every grade and event! Congratulations to the 2013 Grand Aggregate Champions:

Rebekah Weir (Year 9)
James Murray (Year 11)
Alexandra Wilson (Year 10)
Oscar Rutledge (Year 6)
Ted Trollope (Year 11)
