It is a very different year for lots of reasons, due to COVID-19, and the 2019-2020 school year was no exception. The school year officially ended Thursday, with students starting to learn from home, in mid March. They missed proms and graduations and seeing their friends, but graduates from our local schools were treated to something very unique to the Kincardine area. The Scottish Pipe Band members were each assigned a local graduate to pipe out their school year, by going to their homes and playing, bringing proud smiles to many faces including family and friends.
