Saint Stephen’s College places strong emphasis on its bands and percussion, with a Percussion Ensemble and a Junior and Senior Drumline catering to students from Years 5 to 12. The SSC Drumlines have a long history of performing at the EKKA and have been asked to perform at a variety of other large scale events in recent years. Some of these performances include ANZAC Day Services in Coomera, the Gold Coast International Boat Show, Easterfest, the V8 Superfest Drivers Parade and parades at Movie World and through Surfers Paradise. The SSC Drumline were winners of the Australian Percussion Eisteddfod in 2013 and 2014, and took out first place in the Test Piece in 2017. They have travelled to Melbourne and Sydney to perform, and provided ceremonial fanfares for the Gold Coast City Council.
