Ma­jor role for young mu­si­cian

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

PRES­BY­TE­RIAN Ladies’ Col­lege Year 11 stu­dent Amelia Cross­ing has been elected pipe ma­jor for 2017 by her peers and school staff.

The 16-year-old City Beach res­i­dent will lead the school in about 50 events dur­ing her time in the role.

Amelia said she started play­ing the bag pipes about four years ago be­cause she liked the look of the out­fits.

She is study­ing mu­sic as a WACE sub­ject and said she prac­tised the bag­pipes ev­ery day.

She said the bag­pipes were quite loud but she hoped to con­tinue play­ing the in­stru­ment.

Amelia was at the Cen­te­nary Trust for Women Lun­cheon at Winthrop Hall last month, where she led Gov­er­nor Kerry Sanderson in to the event.
