Robbie Hayward in Year 10 at The Scots School has won NSW Champion D Grade Piper after coming first in all D grade events at the 2012 NSW Solo Piping and Drumming Championships at The Scots College Sydney on the weekend. 

Pictured below: Matthew Gervansoni, Oscar Sobalirov and Robbie Hayward

Robbie now joins a list of many Scots Bathurst pipers who have also won this title previously. 

Oscar Sobalirov in Year 11 at The Scots School also competed in the highly competitive A and B grade drumming sections winning a 3rd in the 2/4 March.

The boys were joined by The Scots School old boy Matthew Gervasoni (2010), a previous NSW Champion Piper who was also very successful on the day. Matthew was the privileged piper to pipe Prime Minister Julia Gillard into the Bathurst Light on the Hill Dinner in 2010. 

Throughout the event The Scots School Students were very supportive of each other and were reminded several times by the judges how lucky they were to be taught by The Scots School Pipes and Drums Master, Mr Gill McKenzie, a man whose reputation is well known and respected in national piping circles. The Scots boys managed to take out numerous events that were dominated by pipers and drummers from much larger schools such as Knox Grammar and The Scots College. Scots Bathurst students are encouraged to take advantage of the unique opportunity of having a teacher of the calibre of Gill McKenzie and have a go at competing at these types of events (it’s also a fun day for the parents).

Busy Bike Day at Scots

Friday, September 14, 2012 14 Sep

Students of the Scots Junior School were treated to a Bike Day on Friday 14th of September to learn more about bike safety and to improve their bike riding skills.

 The students talked to Constable Holden from the Police about ways to stay safe on their bikes at crossings and in their driveways. Constable Holden also talked to the students about how important it is for students to wear their helmets, ride with an adult and don't ride too fast.

After their safety talk students had a great time completing the obstacle course. The Scots grounds were the perfect venue with the long School road and many sporting courts to ride on, not to mention the beautiful spring weather to enjoy as well.

The Junior School were also having a fun day lunch of hot dogs, fruit and poppers.

Many Thanks go to the Parents and Grandparents of Students who attened and helped out on Bike Day!!
