On Saturday, May 27th the Colborne Public School Drumline and Oak Ridge Percussion traveled to Toronto to compete in the Canadian Drumline Association’s Ontario Provincial Championships.


Students from left to right are Faith Walton & Sam Short.

Colborne Public School won the intermediate classification over St. Marcellinus Secondary School while Oak Ridge Percussion placed second in premier class to St. Michael’s College School. May has been a whirlwind month for both groups as they were competing in the Quebec Provincial Championships just two weeks ago. In Montreal, Oak Ridge Percussion placed first in premier class while Colborne Public School took second in intermediate class. 


Students in the Colborne Public School Drumline are in grades 5-8 while Oak Ridge Percussion consists almost entirely of former Colborne Public School students who now attend East Northumberland Secondary School.
