History in the Pipeline

Grahamstown residents, used to hearing the familiar sound of the Bagpipes from Lower Field, will soon be hearing the sound in stereo, as St Andrew’s Prep, for the first time ever, has its own up and coming Pipe Band.

After many months of dedicated practicing on the Chanter – a prerequisite to graduating to the Bagpipes – five pupils have earned their right to play on the difficult instrument. Three more are practicing hard to join them and two of Prep’s drummers accompany the pipers.
