The Govan Schools Pipes & Drums Association has been operating since 2014 giving bagpipe and drum tuition to pupils in an area recognised by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation as one of significant deprivation.

It has been proven that Pipe bands give young people skills for life; they promote teamwork, commitment, self-esteem, a sense of discipline and dress, fun and friendship and can even lead to employment opportunities. Pipe bands are also a source of pride and focus for schools and communities. In the longer term, communities are stronger because community bands need new members to survive and to flourish.
