Dollar’s Pipe Band Place First in National Competition

On 8 March, pupils from 152 Scottish schools arrived in Kilmarnock for the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships (SSPBC).

This competition was established by Scottish Schools Pipe and Drum Trust (SSPDT) and the main aim of the event is to showcase the talent of young musicians from across Scotland.

As ever, Dollar Academy’s Pipe Bands performed exceptionally well, with our Novice Juvenile A Band and Juvenile Band placing first in their respective categories, meaning that out of 152 schools, Dollar has finished first in the top and second categories! A fantastic success for the Pipe Band, who are now preparing for a busy season of competitions.

Well done to everyone who took part in this competition and thanks to all who turned up to support our Bands on the day.
