Pipe Band performance at StAC Attack.The best of Scottish culture and performance was on full display at a packed James Hay Theatre on Sunday 30 July, when StAC Attack returned to the Christchurch Town Hall. There was a brilliant atmosphere as audience members enjoyed spectacular performances from 108 Pipe Band students from Years 3–13 (including two Old Collegians from 2022) supported by 20 St Andrew’s College Highland dancers, and the New Zealand Champion Grade 1 Pipe Band – Canterbury Caledonian (over half of whom are Old Collegians). It was the biggest group of performers yet for
this highly anticipated annual event.

There was fantastic feedback from audience numbers, with many commenting on how much they enjoyed the items with the combined Pipe Band and Highland dancers; and seeing the learners perform. StAC Attack was a wonderful warm-up for the senior members of the Pipe Band, before they headed off to perform and compete at the World Pipe Band Championships
in Glasgow.

StAC Attack showcased Scottish excellence with 108 Pipe Band students, 20 Highland dancers, and the NZ Champion Pipe Band.
