The De La Salle Pipe Band was started in 1972 by Mr. W.M. Culhane. Bill started playing bagpipes at CBC College, Kimberly in 1951. After school he joined Johannesburg Caledonian Society Pipe Band where he became Pipe Major. Later he took up the position of Drum Major for Transvaal Scottish Pipe Band. TUTORING: Glen Allen senior band takes an active roll in promoting the De La Salle Pipes band and also provides tutoring for the learners. many of the members of Glen Allen are ex La Salle and De La Salle Pupils. Please contact us for tutoring and band information. PIPE BAND BADGE: The De La Salle Pipe band wears the original school badge of the De La Salle Order of Brothers from Ireland, after which the band is also named. They have also adopted the regimental badge of the Cameron Highlanders on their headdress and sporrans. PIPE BAND TARTAN: As the founder had played for Johannesburg Caledonian Society Pipe Band, who had already obtained permission from the Cameron Highlanders to wear the Cameron of Erracht tartan, he felt that it was appropriate that the school’s new pipe band would carry the same tartan. PIPE BAND MARCHING TUNE: The founders chose, together with the Brothers of De La Salle, the Irish tune “The Moreen” and this has been played by the band since it’s inception at all competitions and gatherings. -
