National Youth Pipe Band Selection

January 14, 2014 at 1:15 PM

Congratulations to Year 12 College student, Nathan Walker who has been selected into the National Youth Pipe Band of New Zealand as a drummer.  While attending the Royal New Zealand Pipe Band Association Summer School in Christchurch, (along with fellow student, Jack Stewart), Nathan auditioned and was chosen alongside eight other of the country’s top young drummers. 

Nathan is the second College drummer to be selected for this elite group, the first being Louis Norton in 2012 who has just become a member of the World Champion Simon Fraser University Pipe Band (Canada). 

The objective of the National Youth Band is to foster and motivate individuals through intensive practice, self-discipline, sharing of talents, and teamwork to produce performance at the highest level. Nathan has worked hard to develop his skills and is very worthy of this selection.
