The North of Scotland branch of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association held its annual solo piping and drumming competition on Saturday 4 November at the Gordon Schools, Huntly. Liam Brown and Ailsa Kinkead, accompanied by drumming tutor Scott Niven, attended the competition along with around 80 competitors from pipe bands across the north of Scotland. Ailsa played well in the 14 & under snare drum competition and narrowly missed out on the prize list. Liam performed in all under 14, under 16 and under 18 junior piping categories and was placed first in all. A big well done to Ailsa and Liam for representing the school at this event!
