Karara students will be heading to Wheatvale State School on 25th November to participate in a Kops in Kilts​​ performance.​

The Queensland Police Pipes & Drums has been performing the ‘Kops-In-Kilts’ program since the programs inception in 1998 and has performed at numerous Primary Schools ranging from locally based schools in Brisbane, regional areas including Cunnamulla, St. George, Cairns, Charleville and Osaka Japan in 2008.

The ‘Kops-In-Kilts’ program is a free concert, 45 minutes in duration, comprising of traditional and modern Pipe Band music as well as children’s favourites including Bob the Builder, Limbo Rock and the Mexican Hat Dance. A part of the performance will be interactive and some students will have the opportunity to be involved in providing additional percussion to music.

 The Police Pipes & Drums wear traditional Highland dress and a member of the Band will provide an explanation of the uniform, the reason behind its use as well as the history and operation of the bagpipes and drums.

 At the conclusion of the performance there will be time for the students to ask any questions that they may have in relation to the performance and maybe feel what it is like to play a drum.
